The Scourge of Hama...
in a video statement posted on the Internet.

"I, Jumaa Farraj Jassem, head of Section 30 of the foreign service of the General Intelligence Directorate, announce my defection from this criminal regime, as I join the ranks of this blessed revolution," said the man.

AFP was unable to verify the authenticity of the video, which was posted on Friday.

#1  History shows defectors are not treated kindly after hostilities end. Whoever wins will not trust them. They will likely be killed, officially or unofficially, by either side. He'd be better off to move to Argentina or such, if he stole enough money.
