Americans In Lebanon Being Billed By Military For Evacuation
Americans trapped in Lebanon were already frustrated by the slow pace the U.S. government was taking in helping to evacuate them. CNN is now reporting that the U.S. military is billing those Americans it evacuates for the cost of transporting them by ship and helicopter out of the country. There were an estimated 25,000 Americans in Lebanon when the fighting between Israeli troops and Hezbollah guerillas in Southern Lebanon broke out last week.
