Did US Central Intelligence Agency [CIA] William Burns land in Beirut? 

As Lebanon moves more towards total collapse, it seems that the US will keep no glimpse for hope to so that this country would be able survive.

Reports revealed that Burns held brief talks on Saturday with Lebanese army commander Joseph Aoun and several leaders of security forces, said widely informed sources.

According to the reports, Burns made a layover in Beirut as he was traveling from the apartheid entity to Cairo.

The sources said Burns delivered a message of support from the United States to the heads of security and military agencies over their role in preserving security and stability in Lebanon as it endures crippling economic and living crises.

The sources said Burns was briefed by the security officials on the dire situation in the country given the ongoing failure of the ruling class to form a new government nearly a year since it resigned in wake of the August 4, 2020, Beirut port explosion.

Burns listened to their briefings without delving into details as his mission was limited to underscoring American support to the security forces given the major responsibilities they are shouldering in maintaining calm and containing the crises.
