Hacked Emails Expose Syrian Leader

Hacked Emails Expose Syrian Leader, A new Amnesty International report released on the one year anniversary of the Syrian uprising shows the scale of torture in the country. As the international community struggled to absorb the bloodiest episode yet in Syria’s brutal crackdown in Homs, the country’s leader Bashar al-Assad was in Damascus composing a private email to his wife, according to a cache of what appear to be emails between the Syrian first couple, obtained by The Guardian.

It was February 5 this year and, the previous day, the President’s artillery had pounded the restive city as never before, killing several hundred civilians and blowing up a makeshift hospital, according to opposition activists.

In the capital, government forces reportedly killed about a dozen mourners at a funeral. The UN Security Council was drawing up plans to act against the dictatorship.

But Dr Assad’s email, using the pseudonym “Sam”, reflected none of the bloody turmoil nor diplomatic jeopardy facing his country.

In a bizarre message, the sender, apparently the Syrian leader, sent his wife, Asma, the lyrics of a country and western song by the US singer Blake Shelton, and the audio file downloaded from iTunes.
