"Assad’s secret emails": Guardian and Independent's war propaganda shifts into higher gear

by Cem Ertür Sunday, Mar. 18, 2012 at 2:09 PM

Although suffering from a plummeting credibility, The Guardian and The Independent are still escalating their sustained propaganda campaign against Syria.

“Assad’s secret e-mails”:
The Guardian and The Independent's anti-Syria propaganda shifts into higher gear

excerpt from:  Exclusive: secret emails lift lid on life of Assad's inner circle
  • Syrian leader advised by Iran during uprising
  • President privately mocked promised reforms
  • Wife spent thousands on internet shopping
by Robert Booth, Mona Mahmood and Luke Harding, The Guardian, 15 March 2012




Bashar al-Assad took advice from Iran on how to handle the uprising against his rule, according to a cache of what appear to be several thousand emails received and sent by the Syrian leader and his wife.

The Syrian leader was also briefed in detail about the presence of western journalists in the Baba Amr district of Homs and urged to "tighten the security grip" on the opposition-held city in November.

The revelations are contained in more than 3,000 documents that activists say are emails downloaded from private accounts belonging to Assad and his wife Asma.

The messages, which have been obtained by the Guardian, are said to have been intercepted by members of the opposition Supreme Council of the Revolution group between June and early February.

The documents, which emerge on the first anniversary of the rebellion that has seen more than 8,000 Syrians killed, paint a portrait of a first family remarkably insulated from the mounting crisis and continuing to enjoy a luxurious lifestyle.

They appear to show the president's wife spending thousands of dollars over the internet for designer goods while he swaps entertaining internet links on his iPad and downloads music from iTunes.

As the world watched in horror at the brutal suppression of protests across the country and many Syrians faced food shortages and other hardships, Mrs Assad spent more than £10,000 on candlesticks, tables and chandeliers from Paris and instructed an aide to order a fondue set from Amazon.
