Somebody needs to find me the transcript (NOW). The answer that was given by US Director of National Intelligence Mike McConnell on the assassination of `Imad Mughniyyah on Fox News Sunday today revealed something--more than he wanted to reveal, I felt. ("First, the assassination of terrorist Imad Mughniyeh this week — did the U.S. have anything to do with that?
MCCONNELL: No, Chris. I'm aware of the circumstances around it, and we are now — interestingly, from the kinds of capabilities we're talking about, we can see how various parties are commenting and so on. And the big question, of course — Hezbollah has blamed Israel. But there's some evidence that it may have been internal Hezbollah. It may have been Syria. We don't know yet, and we're trying to sort that out.")
