As the cease-fire in Lebanon takes hold, the political fighting begins on both sides of the border. Lebanon's prime minister asserts his authority, while Hezbollah hands out money for reconstruction. In Israel, the prime minister claims victory, and critics erupt. Guests discuss the political fallout from the monthlong war.

Guests:

Steven Erlanger, Jerusalem bureau chief for The New York Times

Jamil Mroue, editor-in-chief of the English-language newspaper The Daily Star in Beirut
