Very interesting article. A couple of questions I hope you can answer:

(1) I've read that France & Saudi Arabia have been trying to broker a deal between the government & the opposition, but the Bush Adminstration has scuttled any compromise. Is this true?

(2) Who are the recent executive orders by the White House blocking fundraising/freezing property of "Persons Undermining the Sovereignty of Lebanon or Its Democratic Processes and Institutions" aimed at?
