Quote of the week

December 7, 2011

Maybe even the quote of the year.

In an interview with ABC News’ Barbara Walters, the increasingly isolated Syrian President Bashar al-Assad answers a question about children being dragged from their homes and arrested with a simple, “I don’t believe you.”

That was bad enough. He continued to separate himself and his government from any “violence against protesters [that] might have occurred”. But then, and this is one to hold up in front of him when the time comes, he said “We don’t kill our people… no government in the world kills its people, unless it’s led by a crazy person.”
