Today, Sunni supporters of Sanyurah (Hariri goons) raised pictures of Saddam, while Christian supporters of Sanyurah (Lebanese Forces goons), raised the American flag. Very ironic, no? Here is the New York Times (yes, Hassan Fattah is there now. I am thrilled, are you not?): "The other side, lined up across the street, raised photographs of Mr. Hariri and Prime Minister Fouad Siniora, and even of Saddam Hussein, while shouting epithets back." Notice the word back at the end of the sentence. Fattah, who got the job at the New York Times and I can't wait to read him covering Metro desk, by inserting that one word at the end of the sentence clearly and casually identified "who started it." Not very sneaky, o graduate of the New Republic school of Fair Middle East Studies.
