Nasrullah’s expression of surprise: frank or deceptive?

August 27, 2006 at 11:50 pm (Arabs, Islamism, Israel, Middle East, Military, News)

According to a news story going around (for example, “Hezbollah head didn’t foresee such a war” by The Associated Press, article courtesy of Yahoo! News), Hassan Nasrullah, head of Hezbollah, claimed that if he had known Israel would respond the way it did, he would not have ordered the Israeli soldiers to be kidnapped.

This almost sounds too good to be true. My first instinct is to see this as an attempt trying to lull us (his enemies) into a false sense of security, so he can rearm while we sit back.
