How could he say this with a straight face?

He's no lover of Israel, but you have to feel somewhat sorry for Lebanese Prime Minister Sa'ad al-Hariri. How could he say this with a straight face?
I do not think that Syrian President Bashar al-Assad had anything to do with my father's murder, Prime Minister Saad Hariri has told the British daily The Times.

Asked by The Times who he now believed killed his father, Hariri said: "I'm the Prime Minister. I do not have the luxury of speculating these days."

"I believe a relationship with a country is simply bound to the interests of two countries and not by personal issues," he added.

"The relationship (with Syria) is geographically and historically important, and I should act as a prime minister, not as Saad Hariri."

The premier said he does not believe that the blood of his slain father, ex-PM Rafik Hariri, "will or should cause strife in the country."
Ouch. He can't really believe that.

No - but he knows what his father's assassins would do if he really pushed hard to establish the truth.

A Lebanese Prime Minister's job is a precarious one these days.

What could go wrong indeed
