CIA: 'Al-Qaeda Dispatched 16 Tons of Explosives to Lebanon'

"...After the US intel was conveyed to the Lebanese side, there were extensive discussions as to why the CIA would supply local security services with information involving plots against Hezbollah.Security leaders have come to the following conclusions: One, the US intel does not exclusively involve Hezbollah as the target of possible hostilities, but also involves the Lebanese army and diplomats from countries allied to Washington. Two, the fact that the Americans have shared this intel could only mean that Washington remains committed to stability in Lebanon, at least for the foreseeable future.
In the meantime, some security officials are of the opinion that the US also wanted to convey a message to Hezbollah, namely, that Washington has nothing to do with any possible attacks targeting the resistance party, in order to protect its interests in Lebanon and the region against any Hezbollah response to attacks by unknown assailants. ..."
