BEIRUT, LEBANON (10:40 P.M.) – The leader of the Lebanese Forces Party Samir Geagea sat down for an interview with the Central News Agency on Wednesday to discuss a number of topics, including the recent media tour of the alleged Hezbollah “missile sites.”

Geagea told the interviewer that the recent diplomatic tour conducted by Lebanese Foreign Minister Gebran Bassil was a media stunt that is not beneficial.

“Amid all of this, verbal responses and media stunts are not beneficial. The president and the prime minister must deal very carefully with what is happening and must warn all parties against taking any step that would pose the least risk to Lebanon,” Geagea said.

The Lebanese Forces leader has long been a critic of Hezbollah and has often called on the government to push for the disarmament of the organization.

There’s nothing wrong with transparency at the government level. Hezbollah is in the Lebanese government and they were being transparent by giving tours of the sites the Israelis allege to be hiding missiles and other weapons. What’s wrong with that? Are you now upset that they proved the allegations to be false? Because I can’t think of any logical reason you would call that taking a “risk”. It’s the expected response to false allegations.
