Obama Raises Money With Syrian Apologist
In February of 2011, Vogue published a gushing and glowing profile of Syria's First Lady. This was smack in the middle of what was known as the Arab Spring, when citizens of Middle Eastern countries were rising up against dictators, like, say, the one Asma al-Assad is married to.Within days of the article hitting newsstands (with the appalling title "Asma al-Assad: A Rose in the Desert"), true to form, Mr. al-Assad had already killed about 300 innocent people and jailed upwards of 10,000 for daring to protest in favor of personal liberty. Since then, as we all know, things have only gotten worse. 10,000 innocent Syrians have been massacred by Mr. Assad's troops and as of this very day, all hell is breaking loose.And tomorrow night, in the face of all this, the President and First Lady will elegantly dine and raise money with Syria's own Walter Duranty.
