    "Now in those days the counsel that Ahithophel gave was as if one consulted the word of God" - 2Samuel 16:23// Ahithophel gave Absalon, the son of King David, an advice that if followed, would have won him the Kingdom of Israel. Hillary gave Hariri the Son advice, which he followed and lost his rule over Lebanon. Hillary's advice was for Lebanon to stick with the International court investigating Hariri Sr.'s murder, and the Son followed it. The least that would have happened was an insurrection by Hizballah or a civil war. Fortunately for everybody, the Druze understood the threat and helped bring down the Hariri government by Kosher parliamentary means. Hillary still doesn't understand diplomacy. It is the art of the possible, lady. If you follow a route that does more damage than good, it is a stupid way of diplomacy. Obama himself needs some Ahithophel for help, not this anti-Ahithophel named Hillary.
