WASHINGTON — The United States has condemned Hizbullah vigorously for quitting Lebanon's pro-Western government and causing it to collapse. A White House statement promised to help Lebanon peacefully reconstitute a government.

National Security Adviser Tom Donilon said Friday that Hizbullah's intentions have been "laid bare." He said the Shi'ite militant group would have a hard time presenting itself as a "righteous resistance organization" if it continues trying to undermine "international efforts to find the truth."
