More lies from Syria’s enemies.

The man who wrote this op-ed piece is Farid Ghadry, a Syrian expatriat living in the US. He rails against Virginia Senator Black for supporting Syrian president, Bashar Al Assad. It’s easy to find Syrians who want President Al Assad to be deposed, all you have to do is look among the people who have been actively trying to depose him. Look among the Syrian people in general and President Al Assad has a vast majority of supporters. A brief description of this man is as follows:
Farid Al-Ghadry (Arabic: فريد الغادري) (born June 18, 1954) is the Syrian-born co-founder and current president of the United States-based Reform Party of Syria, a party lobbying for regime change in Syria. Many of al-Ghadry’s critics have compared him to Ahmad Chalabi, the Iraqi exile who lobbied the US government to liberate his home country from Saddam Hussein.

Chalabi, by the way, heaped lie upon lie to take us to war in Iraq.

Three years into this war and I still haven’t found a credible source against Al Assad, only Saudi royals, US government puppets and radical Islamists.


About Leila

I am a wife and mother. I am an Orthodox Christian. I am a yoga and fitness instructor and personal trainer. And I am a Syrian American with family living in Syria. My life is defined by my family, and right now, that means chronic worry and fear. Thank God for my faith and the support of my family and friends. I started this blog to talk about all sorts of things, but now I focus on Syria. Until this war is over, I, like all Syrians with a love for their country and their families, am a prisoner of this war, waiting to see what will be left after the dust settles. I pray for the safety of my family and for my country to survive and repair itself in the future. God willing.
