As I said before, a lot of facts about the case are true, but the Hezbollah thing is a flat lie. There is no reason for me not to say the truth. I am not perfect, I did my time in prison and the US government let me go. I am done and I am enjoying my new life. ...

I am here to tell you that you are losing the war on terrorism because you are not doing a real job. It is like the guy who has a toothache and he pulls out the healthy tooth because removing the bad one would hurt so much. screwing our lives for petty crimes because we fit a certain scenario and SENDING A MESSAGE, won't do it. You have to do real job.

Why don't you go and get hezbollah themselves. Before the war on terrorism, hezbollah power stemmed from its military wing and social services. Today the are the most influential part in the Lebanese system. They are part of the lebanese government, which the US help and support! and they have widspread political coalition. Its main ally is General Aoun who represents the majority of the Lebanese Christian. Their influence is everywhere in the lebanese soceity. They are part of the parliament and the cabinet.

With the exception of hezbollah leader, hassan nasrallah, hezbollah leaders are allover the place and they travel freely. They are the biggest employer after the Lebanese government. They have hundreds of millions of dollars. Can you think of how much just the daily cost of the 2006 war against Israel. Do you think Hezbollah waiting for law breakers to send them lousy dollars to survive? ...

There is no reason for me to lie, ... Instead feeling so mighty about guys like me, go defeat hezbolla, they are only few hundred or few thousands according to US reports. I am not talking Syria or Iran, just hezbollah. But then again, you have to do a real job.

And I might add one thing here, the US government might be able to deceive the good and nice US people, but people here live the truth and know a lot. They know that Israel is a terrorist state and hezbollah are heroes defending Lebanon. If it wasn't for hezbollah, we would be like the Palestenian, people with no land.
