WASHINGTON A leading Arab-American advocacy group has sued the U.S. government, claiming that it failed to protect American citizens from the fighting in Lebanon.
The lawsuit, filed Monday on behalf of about 30 American citizens by the American-Arab Anti-Discrimination Committee, alleges that Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice and Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld did not take all possible steps to secure the safety and well being of U.S. citizens when fighting erupted between Israel and Hezbollah guerillas.
The committee is asking the U.S. District Court in Detroit to order the U.S. government to request a cease fire and to stop shipments of weapons or any other military support to Israel during the evacuation of U.S. citizens from Lebanon.

Someone ought to remind these morons that they placed themselves in danger.
LOL. The IDF must be kicking some butt...
Americans should stay in America. You leave our shores at your own peril.
This dude needs to be on some type of terrorist watch list.
"Someone ought to remind these morons that they placed themselves in danger."
That's right...and I want MY taxpayer money refunded by these idiots who needed to be "saved".
More Arab than American, apparently.

They should, as a favor to the US government for pulling their collective butts out of the fire, go back to Lebanon and distribute humanitarian supplies that WE are providing.
Mostly what they would love is to stop the shipments to Israel.
That would be their contribution to jihad.
The rest is just fluff.
The US has no obligation to do this. Anything they decide to do is an accomodation. This will thrown out by any judge save those in the ninth circuit.
What did this asshate have to say about U.S. citizens in Haifa and Safed?
That's what I thought.
Next time .. leave them there if this is the thanks we get for bailing there rears out of there
One word to these uppity towlieheads...
LOL, maybe these turbans ought to study the US constitution. The Judicial Branch has no jurisdiction over US foreign and security policy. That is entirely an executive and legislative branch function.
And here's an idea, don't vacation in terrorist hot spots next time.
Disbarred at least for filing this ridiculous lawsuit.
And what law was broken here?
(American-Arab Anti-Discrimination Committee)
Before anyone jumps to conclusions, I doubt many Lebanese are part of that Committee. Most Lebanese (especially if Christians) bristle if someone calls us Arabs. The Arabs on the committee have tried repeatedly to get the Lebanese population to join them, but we have steadfastly rejected them. So you have a Muslim organization suing the US on behalf of Lebanese who didn't ask for it.
