Only NBC actually led with Lebanon. CBS's David Martin had a different regional angle: the military trainer-advisors the USArmy is deploying to train the new Iraqi army are being poorly trained themselves. Only 5,000 trainers are on the ground in Iraq and an officer reported to the Pentagon that their training a "phenomenal waste of time" and "nearly irrelevant."
ABC led with domestic news. Lisa Stark (subscription required) reported that none of Detroit's Big Three automobile brands is represented in the Insurance Institute's annual list of the safest car models, neither is Toyota. The key ingredient, Stark explained, is electronic stability control for steering. For a sedan, pick Audi, Saab, Subaru instead.
