Eavesdropping

Al Arab Al Yawm reports that the prime minister has accused unidentified members of his cabinet of leaking news to this newspaper. According to the report, these accusations were made based on (presumably recorded) conversations made between cabinet members and journalists. He also accused ministers of initiating rumors about the government and their colleagues.

It is funny that Al Arab Al Yawm found this out. It seems that the PM wasn’t able to intimidate the source of the leak. What is more worrying is the admission that spying on cabinet members is taking place. More level headed people would refrain from making such a confession.

Is somebody losing his cool?

I will play the devil's advocate role here:)
The government is just like a private organization so whatever happens on it's network is owned by them, even here in the US they record each and everything and official says or send or even think about, because you don't own youself anymore:)

But anyway, nothing is new, bakhiet is just here until the parlimentary elections is over, and I expect that someone close to basem awadalla or awadalla himself will be the next Primeminister, don't you think?

I would like to see the face of nahid hattar when that happens;P

There are questions about whether he will even make it to the parliamentary elections. I think that how the municipal elections today go will be a significant factor.
