The U.S. has strongly condemned Hezbollah for quitting Lebanon’s pro-Western government and causing it to collapse. The White House promises to help Lebanon peacefully reconstitute a government.
National Security Adviser Tom Donilon said Friday that Hezbollah’s intentions have been “laid bare.” He said the Shiite militant group would have a hard time presenting itself as a “righteous resistance organization” if it continues trying to undermine “international efforts to find the truth.”
A U.N. tribunal investigating the 2005 assassination of former Prime Minister Rafik Hariri is widely expected to indict members of Hezbollah. Some fear that could rekindle violence in Lebanon. WP
