Video: Syrian first lady Asma Assad talks about massacre in Homs

Here's Syrian first lady Asma al-Assad talking about the massacre in Homs.

Let's go to the videotape.

Do you really believe that Asma al-Assad said that about her husband's army's atrocities in Homs?
A video blogger reedited segments from a CNN interview Syria's First Lady Asma Assad gave in 2009 during Israel's Operation Cast Lead in Gaza to make it seem as if she is in fact referring to the current violent crackdown in her own country.

In the remixed video uploaded to Youtube, Assad is seen declaring that "the barbaric assault on innocent civilians has been horrific,” and, “this is the 21st century, where in the world could this happen?" as images of the massacres in the city of Homs are displayed.

In its report of the video satire, the New York Times said it was not clear who made the remix, but that it was uploaded to YouTube last week by an anonymous video blogger who had posted video of a protest in the Syrian capital, Damascus, in January. Before that, the same person uploaded a series of brief comedy sketches, apparently shot in Britain.
Read the whole thing.

Asma seems a bit of a hypocrite now doesn't she? I hope her husband realizes she's not talking about him. Otherwise, it will be 'off with her head.' Heh.

Did she manage to get out? Or will she wind up being raped, gutted and butchered by the time this is over?

Betting pool, anyone?
