TAGS: LE PARM PM PTER
SUBJECT: LEBANON: POST APPROVES SECTION 1206 PROPOSAL

REF: STATE 84130

Classified By: Ambassador Jeffrey Feltman; Reason: Section 1.4(b)

(S) Chief of Mission fully supports the FY08 Section 1206
proposals as submitted by USCENTCOM. These two proposals,
which address special forces capability and border security,
reinforce the mission's strategic goals of counterterrorism
cooperation and military-to-military engagement with Lebanon.
The border security component provides the U.S. an
opportunity to materially support Lebanon's efforts to
counter cross-border movement of terrorist resources and
personnel. The special forces component enhances a growing
Lebanese capacity proven so crucial in the recent counter
terrorism operations in the Nahr al-Bahrid camp.
