Breaking News: Top ISF Investigator Killed



I don't have any time today to follow up on this latest assassination. My condolences to the family and to that portion of the country that cares.

Captain Wissam Eid was a leading technological expert in the Internal Security Forces, one of only a handful of security services purged of Syrian infiltration. The Captain was highly involved in the investigation of the Hariri assassination as well as the string of assassinations that have plagued the country over the past three and a half years. After surviving a previous attempt on his life in February of 2006, Captain Eid was killed today along with 2 of his bodyguards and 4 civilian bystanders.

Captain Eid is not the first member of the ISF's investigations department to have been the target of assassination. Back in September 2006, Lt. Col. Samir Shehade has the target of a bomb which took the lives of a number of his aides. Shehade was a chief investigator in the assassination of former Prime Minister Rafic Hariri. After close to three years of investigation, Syria remains the chief suspect in that assassination and those that have followed, including this one!

    Bashar Assad can get away with anything because he is protected by Israel against removal from power...No one can remove the Alawites from power in Syria as long as Israel's veto exists...for that reason the Lebanese will never know the taste of peace in their homeland...
    Indeed, Israel and Syria 2 mortal enemies of the Lebanese nation and idea...

  2. Sorry Ane Onymous, but this is one of the most ridiculous statements I have read here. Syria is a deadly ennemy of Lebanon, simply because it doesn't recognise its right to exist (well, it officially did, but we all know that Syria doesn't give a shit about any paper its government signs or any statement it makes). Israel is not a deadly ennemy of the Lebanese existence. Actually, Israel would be perfectly happy with a strong Lebanese state, because it would control Palestinian militias and disarm Hisbollah. Israel interests are clearly for a strong Lebanon, independant of Syria and Iran.
