White House spokesman Robert Gibbs said Wednesday that Ahmadinejad's visit to Lebanon shows that the Iranian president continued his "provocative ways" even as he has led his country toward economic distress and sanctions.
"I think that it also suggests that Hezbollah values its allegiance to Iran over its allegiance to Lebanon," said Gibbs.
Earlier Wednesday, thousands of Lebanese — mostly Hizbullah backers — lined the main highway into the capital from Beirut's airport, where Ahmadinejad arrived.
