2:27 pm
case, that's my father's legacy. trying to circumvent a geopolitical problem in lebanon. you pay in ultimate prosper mohammed shutter was among the politicians who opposed syrian and iranian influence in lebanon, killed in a wave of assassinations, investigations haven't been credible, and culprits were never caught for his son, roni, an independent judiciary and having the tools to pursue justice won't be enough. it's a security problem that lebanon is burdened with not every problem in this country as ours. some are, and i think those are the steps forward for reform. but the larger picture, i don't think we have control over that. there has been violence when the voices are raised. those in power have made the choice between peace or justice said there was ita, bailed for decades. the threat of violence and taliban checkpoints made it dangerous for people to travel around have gone on. and now 11 months after western powers
