Lebanon's Flag at Half Mast

The Lebanese flag was raised at half mast at the Presidential Palace and the Grand Serail on Saturday in mourning for General Wissam al Hassan, who was assassinated on October 19th, 2012.  General Al Hassan was head of the Intelligence Bureau at the Internal Security Forces and was widely credited with the infiltration, capture and dismantling of numerous Isreali and Syrian clandestine cells in Lebanon.  Most recently, General al Hassan uncovered an extensive terrorism/assassination campaign ordered by Assad regime stalwarts, arresting former Lebanese minister Michel Samaha and issuing indictments against Syrian General Ali Mamlouk in the process.  The Assad regime has been widely blamed for this assassination, with some pointing a finger at Hizballah as a participant.
