"Beyond individuals, however, 'The findings of greatest
concern are those that identify systemic problems....'
`
Systemic?  Not the same as systematic.
`
Systemic problems?  Not chance glictches.  Rather, dis-
orders affecting the whole body or significant parts of
it.
`
As the [Accountability Review] Team put it: 'problems
where the Agency's programs or processes did not work
as they should have,' adding: 'the fact that failures
were systemic should not absolve responsible officials
from accountability.'"

"Sheik Daie al-Islam al-Shahal, founder of the fundamen-
talist Salafi Sunni movement in northern Lebanon, blamed
Monday's attack on 'external forces' and rejected sugges-

Here AP's earlier September 29th 6:26 AM EDT version:
`
Officials: 5 killed in northern Lebanon explosion
`
"Sheik Daie al-Islam al-Shahal, founder of the fundamen-
talist Salafi Sunni movement in northern Lebanon, said 
Monday's attack was part of the conflict among 'external
forces' in Lebanon' and rejected suggestions that Sunni
militants were behind it."

`
`
Here's *the* difference BETWEEN
`
"blamed...attack on 'external forces'" --which suggests
external forces operating from WITHOUT Lebanon (Syria)
`
AND
`
"said...attack was part of the conflict among 'external
forces' in Lebanon" --which specifies external forces
operating WITHIN Lebanon (The Superpower).
`
`
Another difference?  The later newsstory represents a
coverup of CIA false flag ops.
