How the mighty have fallen. You all remember the smirking emptiness of Charlie Rose’s interviews with Dr. Assad during which he unabashedly asked him why he doesn’t step down from the presidency. All this time, I bet none of you knew Rose was a shameless exhibitionist who used to flash female workers at PBS and CBS. As it turns out, he did more than that. Why, Rose, a self-styled “incisive” reporter, regularly sexually harassed female employees at every place he ever worked. And now, his just-announced scandal has finally put an end to his miserable career. President Assad has, no doubt, sent him a valedictory note wishing him “better luck next time”. And this, from Moscow where Vladimir Putin introduced him to the military men who saved Syria from even more destruction. (Read the articles below. They tell you a lot.)
Riyaadh Hijaab, the inept chairman of the Higher Negotiations Committee (yawn) has just tendered his resignation from Saudi Arabia just like Saad Hariri. Hijaab was under house arrest where Clown Prince Muhammad bin Salmaan (MBS) shook him down for the $25,000,000 KSA paid him to leave his post as PM in Syria and lead the gentrified opposition. We don’t know if Hijaab coughed up KSA’s side of the bribe, but, he did agree to stop the charade that there was a realistic opposition to Dr. Assad’s presidency. Hijaab will never see Syria again. If he does, it will be from a dangling position with a thick rope tightening around his thick neck. Hijaab, like Charley Rose, and David Cameron, Francois Hollande, Guido Westerwelle, Zapatero, Berlusconi, Obama, and Clinton, has found his special niche in the septic tank of history.
