Breaking: Lebanese Cabinet Member Assassinated

Hot Air reports an anti-Syrian Lebanese Cabinet member has been assassinated.

Via Snapped Shot. They’re not 100% sure yet that it was a political assassination but Fox just broke in to say the shooter was a sniper. If the Syrians are behind it, it’s both par for the course and incredibly stupid, coming as it does two days before Hezbollah is set to take to the streets to try to “peacefully” topple the government and four days before that super-keen, let-the-healing-begin summit between Iraq, Syria, and Iran. And at a moment when even people like Tony Blair are urging us to talk to Damascus.

Plenty of links over there. I'm having trouble accessing Snapped Shot.


Eerily enough, Opinion Journal had an update today on the Rafik Hariri murder.
