Anderson Cooper of CNN takes the Syria ambassador to the United Nations, Bashar Ja'afari, to task over the videos posted that show human rights abuses. Ja'afari responded by calling for "objectivism", insisting that there were some civilian casualties but most of the violence was at the hands of "armed terrorist groups," Salafists, and Takfiris who are the "the outcome of the British and American invasion of Iraq".
The invasion of Iraq was over 7 years ago, so Cooper asks, why did these events happen now? And if the Syrian regime is telling the truth, then all these other reports are lies? Is Assad history's biggest victim?
