Bashar al-Assad is a two bit dictator of Syria who used to enjoy hanging around with other two-bit dictators like Muammar Gaddafi. As dictators-in-arms they so loved to tell stories about torturing people, murdering people, sending terrorists to kill the innocent all while boasting of their love of Allah. But, once Assad witnessed international feeling go against his buddy, the “good dictator” rushed to put the knife in the back of his ally.
Syrian sources provided French intelligence with information that led to Gaddafi’s arrest and killing. A combination of Syrian information and French technology led to the ambush of Gaddafi and subsequent murder at the hand soy his captors. I guess Assad was a comrade in arms with Gaddafi. This means he would sell out his mother if it meant more power!
