Syrian Terrorist Attack–Or Is it?

The Jerusalem Post reports that the Reform Party of Syria is suspicious that the “terrorist attack” in Syria was set up, fabricated by the regime to give the government a free hand in crushing dissent.
As the New York Times reports, “In Syria, violence like this has been nearly unheard of for two decades. The government has a history of crushing any sign of Islamic radicalism within its borders…An American official in Washington said Tuesday night that conflicting accounts of the clash made it impossible to say who the attackers were or what might have been their targets.”
So, who done it? Check out the Free Arab Forum for more information. Whoever did commit the attack, one fact is a bit more disconcerting: “According to the Middle East Intelligence Bulletin, President Baschar al-Assad has consolidated power and now makes all major decisions in Syria.”
