Just a few years ago, when he was a Massachusetts senator, John Kerry and his wife Theresa dined in Syria with the Assads. Wouldn’t it be a good idea to call on that relationship now if it could avoid bloodshed.
This astonishing photograph shows U.S Secretary of State John Kerry having a cosy and intimate dinner with Syrian dictator Bashar al-Assad.
Kerry – who compared Assad to Adolf Hitler and Saddam Hussein yesterday – is pictured around a small table with his wife and the Assads in 2009…
The picture is believed to have been taken in February 2009 in the Naranj restaurant in Damascus when Kerry led a delegation to Syria to discuss ideas and talk about the way forward for peace in the region.
