I swear I am not kidding: did Nichola Branford write this lousy piece on Hizbollah in the Economist?

This sentence gave it in: "and fighters on the ground say Iran still calls the shots." As in all Nicholas Branford work of fiction about Lebanon, Hizbollah fighters and commanders always manage to tell him very damaging things about Hizbollah to carry it to Western readers.  And notice that those interviewed in the article are all foes of Hizbollah, and notice that WINEP is identified without a reference to its political affiliation.  Even the Economist in the time of Marx was less bad than this.
