Lebanese Former PM says pro-US governments decision to stay or leave lies with Bush Administration

Lebanese former Prime Minister Salim Hoss said that the current government of Fouad Saniora will not seek to find a solution to the political crisis in the country, because its decision to stay or to leave lies in the hands of the US administration. 

In a statement he made Friday, Hoss chided Saniora’s ruling bloc for not taking any step towards solving the problem of the government at a time the people are sharply divided over it. The former PM also addressed the opposition asking it to set a date to end the sit-in, adding that his “Third Power” will not take part in the move fearing a likely infiltration of “the fifth column.” Hoss accused the United States of choosing to take a side in the Lebanese internal conflict, under the pretext of serving a democracy, the former PM dismissed this as “fake.”
