Don’t you sometimes wish that someone in authority in the U.S.
government would explain how they determine which dictators we’re
supposed to like and which ones we’re supposed to dislike?
Consider, for example, Syria. Right now, Syria is our enemy because it’s

Obama is demanding that Syrian dictator Bashar al-Assad leave office.
Obama has also imposed sanctions on the Syrian regime.
But wait a minute! I thought Assad was our friend. Isn’t he the dictator
whose brutal henchmen tortured Canadian citizen Maher Arar at the
specific request of the CIA? Isn’t the CIA an agency of the U.S.
