Hama Attorney General Adnan Bakkour’s story is a major one, but exactly which major one remains to be seen. Is he a top legal officer in the Assad regime that bravely resigned in the face of a massacre? Or did he get kidnapped and forced to read a statement at gunpoint?
The first story is the story seen on in a pair of released videos, during which the apparent Bakkour insists that he resigned in anger when the regime ordered him to cover up the massacre of 300-plus protesters and issue a report blaming the protesters for the deaths.
The second story is the official story of the Syrian government. Already an additional Bakkour video denied that the regime’s claim was true, and the state media’s credibility after denying the massacres for weeks is probably about as bad as it can get.
At the same time, it is odd that Bakkour would pick this moment to resign. After all, the massacres happened weeks ago and he apparently didn’t have a problem with them then. Until he appears in public, a dangerous proposition no matter which story is true, it will remain a mystery.

Heavens! I'm beginning to think that the lefties are more entertaining than the righties are because they are actually much more creative in the ways they find to brainwash themselves into believing that their dictator heroes can do no wrong. Well, of course, the guy could not have possibly resigned as a result of the horrors he has witnessed, he was kidnapped by the CIA who waterboarded him to near death and then made him read a pre-written statement on teevee. Yeah, sure, that's the ticket. After all, who in their right mind would ever object to Assad slaughtering CIA-induced agents who are so brainwashed that they don't mind standing in front of a tank that is firing at them? Duh! Every leftie in the world knows that to be the absolute truth. And if you don't believe it, then, ask Fidel Castro, he'll tell you. In fact, if you catch him in a good mood (not that I am suggesting the guy is capable of being in a bad mood, of course!), he'll even tell you the story of the time back in the 60s when the CIA fed Crazy Glue to his chickens to glue their asses so they couldn't lay eggs and the people of Cuba (who only had eggs to eat because of the blockade and all that) would starve to death.
Yep. I'm a believer.
Kidnapping people and forcing them to make statements on camera is something that is beneath the ethos of an organization such as the Mossad. NOT!
