Well, what makes you so sure? Who is this Nabil Tawil, gossiping to the Americans? Even he admits he only has "suspicions" of money laundering via OTV, and the "sacks of money from Iran and Syria" (lol) is "allegedly" something he told Joumblatt.You know what isn't a sack of lies, the Wikileaks cable I posted above.
Also, this is back from 2007. Since then, Joumblatt and Frangieh have become staunch opponents of Aoun's and Bassil's. Bassil's enemies need to fabricate lies about private jets to discredit the man - if they had first-hand knowledge (not even proof) about blackmail, bags of money, gifted armored cars from Bashar and money-laundring via OTV, keno nekoulna rasna fiyon la hol khbar non-stop.
Nothing wrong with Wikileaks cables, by the way. Many of them paint a very damning picture of the LF, FM, PSP and others... and they're not hearsay like this one.
