This was stated in an interview with RIA Novosti by the secretary of the governing council of the Lebanese party "Movement of Independent Nasserists" General Mustafa Hamdan, who headed the presidential guard under President Emile Lahoud (1998-2007).

According to him, all patriotic Lebanese consider Kissinger to be the first "strategic enemy" who made plans to destroy the Arab nation.

"His diabolical mind was behind most of the scenarios and plans that cost this nation a lot of death and destruction," he said.
