COMPELLING LISTEN: If you didn’t catch it this on Saturday morning, this interview was very interesting – albeit rather depressing.
The fighting in Syria, particularly in the capital Damascus, has intensified but so have the defectors from the country, in particular the elite Sunnis and significantly members of the Tlass family. Brigadier General Manaf Tlass defected recently and is believed by some observers to be a potential leader of the country if President Bashar al-Assad is removed. Who is Manaf Tlass? And what is the outlook if the Sunnis gain power?
