An Arab-American group plans to sue the U.S. government for failing to protect American citizens from the fighting in Lebanon. Lawyers told the Detroit Free Press that the lawsuit, which was to be filed Monday by the American-Arab Anti-Discrimination Committee on behalf of about 30 people, alleges that Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice and Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld did not take appropriate steps to secure the safety of U.S. citizens when fighting erupted between Israel and Hezbollah.
