Excerpts from the Arab and Iranian Media & Analysis of US Policy in the Region

Patrick Galey thinks As-Seyassah is a reliable source

What can you say when you read this from a writer for the revamped Hariri-Qatari Daily Star:

“…The so-called October 2008 poisoning was probably a fabrication. It is likely that al-Jarida’s report falls into this category. But not so fast. Several Kuwaiti dailies, such as al-Jarida, al-Rai and al-Siyyesseh, have very good Hezbollah sources, dating back to the imprisonment of party operatives in Kuwait following the 1990 Iraqi invasion of the tiny gulf state.

It’s no small coincidence that the papers in Kuwait are often the first or only to report incidents relating to Hezbollah; the party is rarely moved to deny such reports given their limited reach and the near-impossibility of verification.”

— I really could not understand his proof point: they have good sources…. because of the 1980s assassination plot? Really?
