Syria: Can Vogue Magazine Help Poor Asma?

According to a Reuters report that comes via the Syrian resistance, members of the the Assad Family, including Bashar’s wife Astma, attempted to escape Syria Sunday but were driven back?

Syrian security forces attempted to smuggle Syrian President Bashar Assad’s family out of the country, sources from the Syrian opposition told Al-Masry-Al-Youm Sunday evening, according to a report published by the Egyptian daily.

According to the report, security forces tried to aid the president’s wife Asma Assad, to escape via Damascus, along with his children, mother and cousin.

The sources told Al-Masry-Al-Youm that “a convoy of official vehicles was seen heading to the airport in Damascus,” before they were intercepted by brigades of army defectors.

Who knows if this is true, but as readers may recall, this is the same Asma Assad so glowingly praised in a major article by Vogue. The magazine her a “rose of the desert,” to their everlasting shame. The publishers scrubbed the article from the Internet and never made more than a perfunctory apology.
