Michael Ledeen on Hugh Hewitt

You can read the whole interview over at RadioBlogger but this part really caught my ear and should not be overlooked.

HH: All right. So now that we've established that they're doing that, you broke a scoop that at the big summit that a lot of people noticed between the Iranian president Ahmadinejad, and Bashir Asad in Syria last week, there was a third person. You want to tell people who he was?

ML: Yes, he was Imad Mughniyah, who is the operational chief of Hezbollah. He is the person who organized the bombings of the Marine barracks and the American Embassy in Beirut in the early 1980's. He's the guy who organized the bombing of the Jewish centers in Buenos Aires in 1992, and he remains exceedingly active today in organizing what they call the insurgency against us in Iraq. I mean, he's in this up to his neck, and has been all along.
