Iran's Revolutionary Guards Not Ruled Out in Hariri Murder Probe
25-Aug-2010 (2 comments)

A U.S. source did not rule out Iran's Revolutionary Guard Corps in the assassination of former Prime Minister Rafik Hariri.
Al-Liwaa newspaper on Monday quoted the source as saying that "rising Iranian tension over the International Tribunal and remarks made by Iranian officials in this regard was due to fears that Iranian names could be implicated in Hariri's assassination."

It said the source did not rule out that indictments could touch Mohammad Reza Zahedi, who is better known as Hasan Mahdavi, Force Commander of Quds Brigade in Lebanon, and Gen. Qassem Soleimani, in charge of the Lebanon-based Quds Brigade in Iran's Revolutionary Guards.

This Brigade, which Hizbullah is affiliated with, is in charge of the Revolutionary Guards' activity outside Iran, al-Liwaa added.

I tend to agree. The Hariri murder was very convenient for USA. The issue is not who killed Hariri as it was not the Guards. It is that USA wants to crack down on the IRI. With intentions to attack. This requires proper demonization. The IRI in reality is guilty of a lot of murders. But these are murders of *Iranian* people. The Western population does not care about that. It is not useful for propaganda. So they cook up something that is helpful. It is shameful that the US feels necessary to cook up questionable charges while there are real IRI crimes right in their face.
