Ayatollah Khamenei ordered Hariri assassination?

Ynet refers to Lebanese Naharnet which, in turn, copies an article from Newsmax:

Sources familiar with the investigation into the assassination of Rafik Hariri in 2006 told Newsmax that the United Nations Special Tribunal for Lebanon will accuse Iranian Supreme Leader Ayatollah Khamenei of giving the order to murder the former Lebanese prime minister, according to the Lebanese website Naharnet.
So far it sounds like a rumor, but if not, it's a biggy.

This tribunal seems to be taking forever and changing its direction every two months or so.

That is a known fact among Iranian circles, the point is what the Western and Arab governments are going to handle the information...as usuall push it under the rug? lets hope not..this when hariri meets with his fathers killers in Tehran...go figure!

Of course, Western and Arab governments are going to act according to expediency. I agree that most probably they will push it under the rug.
