"President Bush on Friday [Oct. 21] called on the United Nations to convene a session as soon as possible to deal with a U.N. investigative report implicating Syrian officials in the assassination of former Lebanese Prime Minister Rafik Hariri.
"'The report strongly suggests that the politically motivated assassination could not have taken place without Syrian involvement,' Bush said after helping dedicate a new pavilion at the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library and Museum in Southern California.
"The U.N. investigative report, which Bush called 'deeply disturbing,' established a link between high-ranking Syrian officials and their Lebanese allies in Hariri's murder Feb. 14 in Beirut." ...
In its World News Tonight email from October 21, ABC News said, "The U.N. report on the assassination of former Lebanese Prime Minister Rafik Hariri reads like a mafia page turner.
"It reveals evidence that points to the Syrian president's brother, brother-in-law, and even Lebanese intelligence officials as key suspects" and how their "amazingly complex plot penetrated Hariri's state-of-the-art security."
