MP Daher calls Aoun ” insane”


March 14 MP Khaled al-Daher told Kuwaiti newspaper As-Seyassah in remarks published on Friday that Free Patriotic Movement leader MP Michel Aoun is “insane” adding that the latter was being treated in a mental institution.

“A person from Akkar’s town of Bireh was with Aoun in the mental institution . He told us a lot about Aoun’s megalomania [problem].” Daher stressed.

According to local reports Aoun has been suffering from bi-polar disorder since a long time… even before he went into exile in France (October 13, 1990), following his defeat by the Syrian army. Some of the symptoms of the disease could include : Euphoria or irritability, Excessive talk, Inflated self-esteem, Unusual energy, less need for sleep, impulsiveness and a reckless pursuit of gratification. Depression also is one of the symptoms and this could include, Suicidal thoughts and feelings and Poor concentration

Daher also commented on Aoun’s recent interview with Syrian TV and said he is behaving clearly as Syrian President Bashar al-Assad’s agent.

[Aoun’s interview on Wednesday with Syrian TV Ad-Dunya] clearly showed that Aoun is an agent for the [Syrian] regime.”

Aoun told Ad-Dunya on Wednesday that some parties in Lebanon were “adding to the Syrian [crisis] by smuggling arms and sheltering fugitives.”
