U.S. Official in Lebanon Vows to Counter Iran's "Dangerous Activities" in Region

(AP-ABC News) Fadi Tawil - The U.S. will step up efforts to counter Iran's "dangerous activities" around the region including the financing and activities of proxy organizations such as Lebanon's Hizbullah, U.S. Undersecretary of State for Political Affairs David Hale said Monday in Beirut. "It's unacceptable to have a militia outside the control of the state and unanswerable to all the people of Lebanon, digging attack tunnels across the Blue Line into Israel, or assembling an arsenal of over 100,000 missiles with which to threaten regional stability," Hale said after meeting with Lebanese Prime Minister-designate Saad Hariri. "Through diplomacy and cooperation with our partners, we will expel from Syria every last Iranian boot," he added.
