The notion that Assad is a “murderous dictator” most certainly IS in question. You only believe it’s not in question because the TV told you it isn’t. What is NOT in question is that CNN knowingly ran a staged, fake interview featuring a child who cannot speak English reading scripted war propaganda, and that CNN took part in that scripting.
In reality, you do not know what Assad is, and neither do I, because there is too much propaganda clouding the air. What we do know with 100% certainty is that the mainstream media is lying about Syria. This is evidenced beyond a doubt by the fake Bana Alabed interview.
