Omar's father, former Minister Mohammad Chatah, was assassinated exactly one year ago in an attack which rocked the nation and left the country confused.Omar is far from wallowing in self-pity.Politically, Chatah was a Future Movement official and was very outspoken against Hezbollah and the Syrian regime.Hours before he died he tweeted that Hezbollah was trying to gain powers in Lebanon similar to those possessed by Syria during its 15 years of tutelage over the country. The Special Tribunal for Lebanon has indicted five Hezbollah members in the 2005 assassination of Hariri.Omar Chatah said his father valued his freedom of movement and would often walk around alone with no security, simply wearing a baseball cap to hide his identity. He felt that senior Future Movement leadership didn't hold his father accountable enough for these actions. Munla said Chatah would have supported these talks.Once again, Omar Chatah expressed skepticism.The lack of accountability following the country's 15-year Civil War, the lack of accountability following all previous assassinations in Lebanon, and now his father's, has festered in Omar.
