Another unfortunate Muslim who misunderstood Islam seems to have killed Rafik Hariri. From Newsday, :
BEIRUT, Lebanon — Lebanese investigators have concluded that former Prime Minister Rafik Hariri was killed by a suicide bomber driving an explosives-laden truck, according to two security officials familiar with the probe….
Many in the Lebanese opposition reject the suicide bomber explanation and insist that the bomb, which killed Hariri and 17 others, was planted underground. They argue such an operation would require greater planning and the knowledge of the country’s security services. The opposition quickly blamed the assassination on Syria and its allies in the Lebanese government, but officials in Damascus and Beirut have denied any involvement.
Both sides are awaiting a preliminary report on the bombing due to be released today by United Nations Secretary-General Kofi Annan.
Oh. That guy will get to the bottom of this, no doubt about that.
Even if the attack was carried out by a suicide bomber, opposition leaders say they would still blame Syrian and Lebanese intelligence as complicit. There is a long history of intelligence agencies in the Middle East using front groups to carry out political assassinations.
