Another Hariri son

"In a 3/24 meeting with the Ambassador, Baha' Hariri -- Rafiq Hariri's eldest son, who was passed over for politics in favor of second son Sa'ad -- expressed pessimism about Lebanon's current political deadlock. Convinced that the utility of the current national dialogue had run its course, Baha' expressed consternation about the competitive courting of Hizballah. As Hizballah in his view poses a greater threat to Lebanon's future than President Emile Lahoud, Baha' was bewildered by the obsession on the part of the March 14 forces with the presidency."
