Meanwhile back in Syria

UN Chief: Arms crossing Syrian border

The U.N. chief said Saturday that arms are reportedly still being smuggled over the border from Syria to Lebanon, and he urged all sides to fully comply with a
United Nations resolution that ended the summer war between Hezbollah militants and

The leading Lebanese daily An-Nahar reported Saturday that U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon told Lebanese security chiefs that Israel had provided him with "evidence and pictures" of trucks crossing from Syria to Lebanon and unloading weapons.

"There are intelligence reports that arms are smuggled. I am concerned by that kind of arms smuggling, which will destabilize the situation in Lebanon," he told reporters later during a stop at the headquarters of the U.N. peacekeeping force in southern Lebanon.

Lebanon officials deny this is happening. Hezbollah is boasting about it. Speaker Pelosi is oblivious to it. I am reminded to say a prayer for safe release of the two Israeli soldiers who continue to be held hostage by the Religion of Peace. I'm sure Speaker Pelosi won't.
