The ubiquitous man

In another bid to see who can talk up Imad Mughniyeh the most as super terrorist extraordinaire (which was, until recently, mainly a contest between Hezbollah and Israel), an-Nahar’s English-language site is now claiming that he was, in fact, responsible for the founding of the Mehdi Army in Iraq. While I’m no expert on the Mehdi Army, this claim seems more than a little over the top to me.

I’m just waiting to hear the news that Mughniyeh was also responsible for Pearl Harbor and all those bombings in Corsica and Spanish Basque country.

For a much more sober, and informed, view of the situation, I recommend this Newshour interview with Mohamad Bazzi and Robert Baer.
