This is not looking good

With one witness dead, the other witness changing his story, things are not looking good for Syria. Actually more along the lines of looking desperate. Gotta give their intelligence people props though. They are good at what they do. But I have to agree with Hani here. Getting the guy to claim that he was tortured and bribed by Saad Harriri to falsely testify against Syria, that was just too pathetic. Raja also seems to agree: In all seriousness though, this man appears to have attempted to infiltrate the investigation and failed. His initial contact with Mehlis and Khashan prove that he at least tried. His failed infiltration only increases the credibilty of the Mehlis investigation. By concocting such a public affairs fiasco, it appears that the regime may be trying to make the best out of the investment they sunk into this project. And some people will believe it. Why will some arabs go out of their way to defend indefensible , corrupt, tyrannical and morally repugnant regimes such as Bashar's Syria or Saddam's Iraq? Why? There is no heroism in defending butchers. There is no pan-arabism in making excuses for the people we know to be guilter then sin. The fact that we even contemplate defending them or supporting them because the US or Israel attacks them is indictive of our moral intellectual failure if anything. Why do people allow themselves to particiapte in defending the guilty in the name of arab solidarity? What's the point? Does anyone get it? Cause I can't for the life of me.
