NY Times Allergic to Arab Opinion

Can anyone explain to me why the New York Times chose to publish Andrew Exum's OpEd on Lebanon in the wake of the Rafik Hariri's murder? Lemme get this straight, one of the most influential Lebanese politicians is assassinated and the best the Times can do is rely on an American on vacation to tell us what the natives were feeling on that day? Doesn't the Times trust (gasp) an Arab voice to describe an Arab mood. When Rabin was killed am I to assume the first Oped run was by an Egyptian on vacation in Tel Aviv? I don't think so, playa.
