Skip to comments.Syrian exiles: 'Clinton told dissidents to lay down their arms'

Unlike Nancy Pelosi and John Kerry, Hillary Clinton has been smart enough not to allow her picture to be taken with Syrian dictator Bashar al-Assad - at least as far as I could find. So I had to go with the montage above. But Clinton is apparently no less disposed to keeping the dictator in power than are Pelosi and Kerry (and President Obama for that matter).
YNet has published a lengthy interview with two Syrian dissidents who have found temporary asylum in the United States. The two are still considered to be in danger - as are their families back in Syria - so they are referred to by pseudonyms, and the reporter did not even disclose the name of the city outside which they live. But the interview included this shocker in the middle.
A few weeks ago, Amar met with US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. He presented to her, among other things, information about soldiers who defected and plan to launch a guerilla fight against the army. To my surprise, she asked that the defectors lay down their arms, he says. Thats an odd request. Why didnt they ask the rebels in Libya to lay down their arms? How can they do it if at any moment they can be fired at and murdered? Its impractical.

I will rejoice on the day that She Who Must Not Be Named is no longer SoS.
I really, really want to hear an explanation of why Khadafy had to go but Assad must be protected that ISN’T “because America and Israel would benefit if Assad had to go.”
Hussein and Hitlery will only be supportive of regimes that are led by kooks. Even Qadaffi was a toothless lion, as one writer put it, who was brought in line after Iraq’s regime was changed...so even though he was nutty, he wasn’t doing much internationally.
NOW Libya is led by an unknown quantity and there are indications Al Qaeda is growing in that country; black Africans are being slaughtered in Libya by Arabs—and Hitlery and her boss Hussein ignore the atrocities. Don’t expect the media to criticize them.
Same with the Taliban in Afghanistan.
Same with Egypt.
Syria? Well, Syria is run by Iran. Hussein and Hitlery don’t want to upset Iran, I don’t care WHAT they spout about the straits of Hormuz.
And in my opinion it is all a ploy to isolate Israel.
We HAVE to fire these clowns next November, folks.
