Time running out for Assad II

The delaying tactics of Assad are pathetic:

As Syria asked UN Secretary General Kofi Annan on Wednesday to intervene and help broker a “cooperation protocol” between Damascus and the probe team into the assassination of former Lebanese prime minister Rafik Hariri, Paris signaled “time was running out” for President Bashar al Assad. A high-ranking French official told Asharq al Awsat UN investigator Detlev Mehlis “might not wait until 15 December” to present his findings to the Security Council and inform it the Syrian authorities have not cooperated with the probe and that he would be taking the necessary steps in that regard.

Not a reliable source, this one. Just drivel and hate. I think you are above this.

Dear Accountability, you could be right; sometimes their comments are "hate", but the sources (I always check) are legit.
