The sources said that an official Lebanese security force was informed by the Americans 10 days in advance that armed Syrian opposition groups with around 2000 members were planning to launch a military operation that would reach Bekaa's Nahleh village among others.Rumors are spreading that the move [former Prime Minister] Hariri suggested to break the immobility in the presidential election might include a dialogue with Parliament Speaker Nabih Berri and MP Walid Jumblatt from one side, and an attempt to find common ground between the head of the Reform and Change bloc MP Michel Aoun and the head of the Lebanese Forces Samir Geagea on the other.Jumblatt's efforts to arrange a meeting between Speaker Berri and former Prime Minister Siniora have failed, on account of Berri's refusal.Meanwhile meetings between representatives of the Amal and Future movements brought nothing new because despite Jumblatt's efforts, every party insisted on its own position.
