From Tom’s Reading List
al Jazeera “Syrian defence minister and his deputy have been killed after a suicide bomber struck the National Security building in Damascus during a meeting of cabinet ministers and senior security officials, state media reported. General Daoud Rajha and Assef Shawkat – the brother-in-law of President Bashar al-Assad – were killed on Wednesday in the deadliest assault on government officials since the violence began 16 months ago.”
BBC “Hours after the attack, several explosions were reported close to the base of an army division responsible for guarding the presidential palace. However Syria’s information minister denied that they had taken place.”
Wall Street Journal “For over a year, we’ve heard from Obama Administration officials that Western intervention would push Syria into a civil war, kill thousands and put the Assad regime’s stockpile of WMD at risk of falling into terrorist hands. The U.S. hasn’t intervened, and all of this has happened.”
