Hezbollah Operative Arrested in Thailand, Planned Bangkok Attack

I love it when newspapers write that the US claims that Hezbollah is a terrorist organization -- as if there were any doubts by any one but agenda driven leftists and Islamists:

Amid public warnings from the United States and Israel of a possible terror attack, Thai officials said Friday that they had arrested a Lebanese man believed to be a member of Hezbollah in connection with a plot to strike tourists in Bangkok.

The country’s defense minister, Gen. Yuthasak Sasiprapha, said the plot may have involved using a car bomb at tourist sites, synagogues and the Israeli Embassy. He said Israel intelligence agents first informed authorities in Thailand on Dec. 22 that two or three men were suspected of plotting an attack in Bangkok, the Thai capital.

On Sunday, the agents again warned of an attack, possibly set to occur the following weekend at a site popular with Western tourists, like Khao San Road, where many backpackers and other visitors congregate, General Yuthasak said in an interview with the Thai newspaper Naewna....

Earlier Friday, the American Embassy in Bangkok issued an emergency message on its Web site, warning of a possible attack by “foreign terrorists” against Americans in Thailand.
