Adam Smith: ‘Assad Who Has Murdered Hundreds of Thousands of His Own People Is Clearly Not Legitimate’

‘Assad unquestionably has stepped over that line and is no longer legitimate leader for a people he’s more interested in killing than he is in leading’

RUSH EXCERPT:
SMITH: "A leader like Assad who has murdered hundreds of thousands of his own people is clearly not legitimate. Look, there’s a huge problem with governance throughout the Arab world. Legitimate governance that has the support of the people and respects human rights. But I think we can all agree that Assad has taken that to a level way beyond any of the others in terms of the way he has systematically butchered his own people and destroyed his own country. I don’t know, you know, what you would say about the folks who haven’t stepped over that line, but Assad unquestionably has stepped over that line and is no longer legitimate leader for a people he’s more interested in killing than he is in leading."
