Syria

The Bush administration lied to the American people to involve us in Iraq, now they don't even go to the trouble. As tensions escalate with Syria here is Sec Rice gives us for "proof" of Syrian involvement in the assassination of former Lebanese Prime Minister Rafik Hariri.

"While acknowledging that the United States does not know who was behind the Monday bombing that killed the former Lebanese prime minister, Rafik Hariri, Ms. Rice said Syria should be held at least indirectly responsible, 'given their continued interference in Lebanese affairs.'"

Oh and this clinches it,

"Ms. Rice also said that Syria 'created a destabilize environment in Lebanon in what is a developing democratic process.' And she charged that 'terrorists operate in southern Lebanon with Syrian forces in close proximity to them.'"

Never has a more flimsy case ever been made. Well unless you count that whole Iraq thing.
