He has a ranch near Washington DC, yet he has hundreds if not thousands of employees who have not been paid for years.

The last time a Hariri hosted a US administration official away from Hezbollahs eyes and ears, he ended up in a pile of ubble near the St Georges hotel in Beirut. So, please take care Saad. For all your mistakes and weaknesses, you are still better than most sunni alternatives.
