Just read the treasury department sanctioned Hezbollah. "Sanction" puzzles me, as it is a self-contradiction. The first definition I looked up said the noun means censure, but the verb means to approve. In context, the treasury strongly DISapproved of the behavior. How do you read this slippery word?
