EEUU ordena congelar las cuentas del Director de la Inteligencia Militar siria
(Via The Counterterror Blog)

The U.S. Treasury Department is announcing the designation of Assef Shawkat, Director of Syrian Military Intelligence, as a Specially Designated National of Syria for "directly furthering the Government of Syria's support for terrorism and interference in the sovereignty of Lebanon" (quoting a departmental statement). Under the designation, any of Shawkat's assets held under U.S. jurisdiction are frozen, and U.S. persons are prohibited from any business dealings with him. More importantly, the designation announces to the world that the United States officially considers Shawkat and the SMI as fomenters of Islamic terrorism in Lebanon, and it fingers a senior official and close confidant of President Assad. Shawkat's importance to the Assad regime is noted in the press release: "In addition to the power he derives from his position, Shawkat also has access to the highest levels of the Syrian power structure by virtue of his marriage to Bushra al-Asad, the sister to Syrian President Bashar al-Assad. Shawkat is a close confidant of President Assad and an important member of his inner circle of advisors."
El Departamento del Tesoro norteamericano anuncia la designación de Assef Shawhat, Director de la Inteligencia Militar Siria, como un Nacional Especialmente Designado, por estar directamente implicado en el apoyo que Siria da al terrorismo y la interferencia en la soberanía del Líbano. Como consecuencia de lo cual sus bienes bajo jurisdicción americana quedarán detenidos y los nacionales americanos no podrán hacer ningún acuerdo comercial con él. Le considera como Director de la IMS, como uno de los que más han fomentado el integrismo islámico en Líbano, y como uno de los más cercanos al presidente Assad.

Al leer esto, me he acordado de este post de Atlas Shrugs: Regime Change Syria.

En él se hacía eco de que Assad había incitado secretamente a un líder chií para que declarara la guerra santa a las fuerzas de la Coalición en Irak.

Y todo ello ocurre cuando el Vice Presidente Haddam ha implicado directamente a Assad en el asesinato de Hariri y se ha reunido con los líderes de la oposición.

Former Syrian Vice President Abdelhalim Haddam met with opposition representatives in Syria in order to conduct peaceful change. Reportedly, Haddam expressing, “This call is a call to save Syria” has not determined any activities yet, but conducted “wide-scale consultations” on the issue together with Syrian leaders. Accordingly, Haddam emphasized this enterprise is unique to Syria. Haddam, claiming the rise a popular movement is due to the development of recent events, reportedly criticized Syrian President Besar Asad, “He never reads, understand and assimilates.”

Es curioso: hasta la BBC denuncia que esto NO sale en los medios de comunicación árabes.
