The STL Indicts

The Special Tribunal for Lebanon has finally issued the indictments for its four suspects in the Hariri case. For the moment I'm going to refer you to the always astute Qifa Nabki's comments, since I think he captures the complexities of the situation. It's a different world and a different Lebanon from when the STL began its work, and I'm sure the Mikati government would like it to just go away.

A political process to attempt to achieve what cannot be achieved on the battlefield.
