Clinton tells Syria’s dictator to leave (video)

U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton joins European leaders today in demanding Syria’s dictator Bashar al-Assad to step aside. “The people of Syria deserve a government that respects their dignity, protects their rights and lives up to their aspirations. Assad is standing in their way,” Clinton said in remarks following President Barack Obama’s direct call on Assad to step down and imposition of new sanctions. Would Hillary say the same thing about Ethiopia’s khat-addicted dictator Meles Zenawi who is committing genocide through famine? Meles has killed and terrorized more people than Assad, and yet the U.S. Gov’t gives him billions of dollars to help him stay in power.
