Placing Blame in Beirut
After the explosion in Beirut, The Takeaway checks in with Lebanese-American reporter Sulome Anderson to hear her thoughts on how the Lebanese diaspora is responding to the chaos. It has been shown that the explosion in Beirut was due to government mismanagement. Protesters took to the streets in Lebanon, demanding an end to the regime, placing blame for the explosion. Sulome Anderson has a history of reporting from Lebanon. Her father, Terry Anderson, was the Associated Press journalist who was taken hostage in 1985, so she has seen conflict in her country since she was born. But as Sulome points out, the blame of the explosion and recent crises should be placed on the corrupt Lebanese state, which has continued to sow divisions among sectarian lines, and neglected to discard the explosive material that led to the misery.
