who is Assad? how come CBS doesn't report her political relationship to
tyrants who commit genocide. Could it be that it would scare the
funding for her movie about Bosnia? Jolie has consistently shrouded
totalitarian regimes. Her relationship to the United Nations has me
questioning her film dollars. (CBS 60 Minutes) Not
one mention of her relationship to the Syrian regime of Assad. One
wonders how she gets the funds for her film making ventures. Angelina Jolie with Asma al-Assad, wife of the Syrian dictator, 2009. As bona fide Asma al-Assad, The meeting is narrated, extensively, in a Vogue article called A Rose in the Desert in which we can read:ambassadors for the United Nations, Jolie and Pitt travelled to Syria and met with Asma and Bashar al-Assad.
Asma likes to say, “You’re safe because you are surrounded by people who will keep you safe.” Neighbors peer in, drop by, visit, comment on the furniture. The president doesn’t mind: “This curiosity is good: They come to see you, they learn more about you. You don’t isolate yourself.” Once again, the myth of the good and beloved King and Queen. This is already odd enough since the Human Rights Watch report for Syria is called A Wasted Decadebut maybe Jolie and Pitt did wonderful ambassador job and things got better, right? of course HRW isn't much better then Angelina Jolie... but... you get the idea.
