What a waste of government funds on such an empty agenda! What is the President doing except attend receptions (which translates to: drinking, a lot of smiling, eating finger-foods, and empty talk). And worse, receptions hosted by so-so countries.
The President's trip comes at a time when PM Seniora will be attending an important donor meeting in New York on the 19th and 20th of September. Well...looks like Lahoud will be so busy during those two days...
