A UN investigation into the death of former Lebanese premier Rafik Hariri will report that Lebanese and Syrian authorities are behind a cover-up of evidence from the February 14 blast, The Independent newspaper said today.
"The UN investigators have become convinced that there was a cover-up of evidence at the very highest levels of the Lebanese and Syrian intelligence authorities," the British daily said.

Veteran Middle East correspondent Robert Fisk, based in Beirut, quoted no sources for his report but said members of Mr Hariri's family had been warned the UN report on the death would be "devastating".
The Lebanese opposition has blamed the pro-Syrian regime for the February 14 explosion that killed Mr Hariri and 18 others.

UN finds evidence of official cover-up in Hariri assassination

By Robert Fisk in Beirut
14 March 2005
As the United Nations' Irish-led special investigation team here prepares to report that the Lebanese authorities have covered up evidence of the murder on 14 February of the former prime minister Rafik Hariri, his two sons have fled Lebanon after hearing that they too are in danger of assassination.

Good find. This should be in ATSNN.

When I was a kid and someone farted then tried to blame it on someone else, we said, "the fox smells his own tail first." Methinks the Lebanese opposition has just let off a "silent but violent".

When seeking the perpetrator of any passionless crime, first ask yourself "who stands to gain". Answer: The anti-Syrian movement, and Bush Cheney Ltd. Years from now they'll be calling this the Lebanese "Reichstaag". Watch the puppets...oh how they dance....

The article is saying the syrians and pro-syrian rulers are the ones doing the cover up.

The syrians. They get ride of a guy who is a billionaire and a problem for them. It simply backfired.

As if the US is the only source of problems in the world...

Its hard to find independant judges on this one.....

Especially the UN has lost a lot of credit when they didn't rupperstamp the iraq war and shortly afterwards UN corruption scandals were getting in the newspapers ( many of wich are probably true, but were seemingly of no importance before that time, hard feelings?)

Now the same Koffi Annan (considering his own son implicated in some corruption matter) tries to safe some face for himselve, will he bow to Washington this time ?

would that suddenly make the UN credible again ? Well it maybe would make the UN "usefull" again...


Very much possible the Syrians overplayed their hand, wouldn't rule out that Syrian hand was played by other party either...

Syria wouldn't assassinate him because they are much more intelligent than that. It's called geopolitical engineering.

Exactly. That was my point. The term "agent provocateur" comes to mind.

That would be the simple way of looking at it, yes. In fact you don't even have to think to come to that conclusion, the mainstream media will do that for you. But I never was a fan of William of Occam.

No, but it does seem a tad convenient that Syria has been the target of Bush & Co's terrorism support allegations, and then this... I even hear that they're dragging out the tired, old WMD mule to run around the farm one more time. "Well I'll be a dog-gone puppet's string, Assad's got Iraq's WMDs! So that's where they got to. Well, here we go again..."

First of all Syria did not had anything to gain with the killing of Hariri, in view of the US breathing down their neck.

Also you want to know who may have done the killing? perhaps the investigations should be directed to US and Israeli involvement they both had a lot to gain from scarifying a sheep.


It was a risky gamble but who cares what the repercussions would be


Nobody will mess around with the US, Right?

Excellent find, Sanctum. Well done!

And you are so right about this wecomeinpeace. That's the question I ask about most everything that happens these days...anywhere in the world (see my avatar). I knew this was a set up...time will prove us correct hopefully.

Every day the antics get bolder and bolder and most don't see it. Sheesh.

And yet the syrians are the ones doing the cover up. Or would you suggest that the UN is part of the US conspiracy to kill a guy sympathetic and useful to the US?

If the US wants to go to war with syria, it will go to war with it. It doesn';t need to cook up some absurd byzantine plan where they assisinate a rich and powerful probable ally in a war and are able to get the lebanese public to beleive that its syria, even tho it 'doesn't make sense' that the syrians woudl do this, in order to get street rallys to say 'gosh, look, they don't like the syrians', especially when the power to rally there is held by hezbollah.

He's a billionaire and isn't on their side. One could've possibly siad that the Taliban had nothing to gain by assasinating Shah from the Northern Alliance too.


perhaps the investigations should be directed to US and Israeli involvement they both had a lot to gain from scarifying a sheep.

Then ask the syrians and lebanese who have been conducting the investigations who did it. They are the ones that are covering up the investigation.

How did you reach that conclusion? Some of us are speculating. You seem to have already signed off on the issue.

Why not? You're not going to tell us that the WMD factor wasn't a cook-up, are you? This one has worked even better, and probably was a lot cheaper than those expensive satellite photos of the magical, disappearing WMDs.


even tho it 'doesn't make sense' that the syrians woudl do this

Sorry, that sentence was a little muddled and I apologize if I'm misreading the context, but if you're saying that such a move would not be advantageous for the Syrians then you're correct. They have nothing to gain from this; only backlash. To not credit them with the intelligence to forsee the outcome we are seeing now is a little bit of a stretch. Anyone could guess that the Syrians would be the first to be blamed for the assassination, evidence or no, and that is exactly what has occured. And almost quicker than the Bush cabal pointed the finger at Bin Laden for 9-11.


He's a billionaire and isn't on their side.

He's rich, so let's kill him. He doesn't like us, but even though we already, in effect, control the country, let's kill him. Who cares about the national and international consequences. Sounds like a solid plan. Ummm....uhhh...


Then ask the syrians and lebanese who have been conducting the investigations who did it. They are the ones that are covering up the investigation.

This is the interesting little tidbit I'm waiting for - to see who the U.N is going to point the finger at. Watch and see. Bubble, bubble, toil and trouble...
