"It's great to be back here," said veteran U.S. journalist Jim Clancy as he sipped a fresh carrot juice at a cafe in Downtown Beirut. Clancy, who worked with the American television channel CNN for over 30 years, spent years covering the civil war in Lebanon from a hotel in East Beirut, long since destroyed. Clancy has returned to Beirut in the intervening years, and has watched the city rebuild itself from the weed-choked rubble. Clancy came back to Beirut to participate in a workshop for the May Chidiac foundation earlier this week, and a lecture at the Lebanese American University Friday afternoon.No such allegations have been leveled against Clancy, who has reported from conflict zones and far-flung corners of the world for decades.Clancy believes, however, that one evening's tweets cannot eclipse his 40-year career in journalism.
