Mouafac Harb is currently a "political consultant" based in Beirut and previously was news director of the U.S.-funded Arabic TV network Al Hurra. According to the Washington Post, Harb is a Lebanon-born U.S. citizen who attended George Washington University. He worked previously as the Washington bureau chief of the Arabic-language newspaper Al Hayat and the news director of Radio Sawa.
According to the Washington Post, "when President Bush appeared on the station to discuss the Abu Ghraib prison scandal, he ended the interview by telling Harb he'd done a "good job," prompting more questions about the station's independence. Harb said he wishes that Bush had not made that comment, but that he also believes the incident was misconstrued. 'I don't believe I was soft on the president,' he said."
