LEIDSCHENDAM, Netherlands: The defense team for Hussein Oneissi at the Special Tribunal for Lebanon continued its closing arguments Thursday, highlighting the links between Ahmed Abu Adass and extremist ideologies to argue he could have carried out the 2005 Beirut bombing.Oneissi, along with two other defendants, allegedly searched for an individual who would fit the profile of a suicide bomber and manipulated the victim into confessing to the assassination on a pre-recorded video.It has argued that Abu Adass, a young Palestinian living in Beirut, was not the actual suicide bomber, but rather a victim used by the real organizers of the crime.Yasser Hassan, co-counsel for Oneissi, however argued that Abu Adass had strong extremist tendencies and could very likely have been the suicide bomber driving the Mitsubishi Canter on Feb. 14, 2005 .
