London-based Asharq al-Awsat is reporting several arrests (aka ‘the usual suspects’) in the assassination of Mohammad Suleiman, the Syrian military general with ties to Hizbollah (though Hizbollah spokesman are saying ‘Suleiman who?’). As Syria is struggling to admit that he was actually killed, I think it may be awhile before we hear any official confirmation.
Meanwhile the Tehran Times is saying Israel did it (as if you expected something different)?
Here’s my question of the day. A sniper, on a yacht, with wave action taking him up and down, manages to get off 4 hits on a target? We’re talking Bourne Identity caliber or better (or are the seas perfectly calm down around Tartous?) . NOTE: Initial reports said he was shot in Cairo but now it appears he was shot in Syria in the port city of Tartous.]]>
