File under: Govt of Syria
A stopped clock will show the correct time on occasion so Todenhöfer might report the truth here. But I tend not to trust Taliban apologists.

#2 "The U.S. administration should hold dialogue with the Syrian leadership with the aim of reaching a peaceful solution for the crisis in Syria," Todenhofer said.
I agree! Diplomatic cables, an occasional telephone call, that sort of thing. No money, weapons or other clandestine interventions however. Let them sort it out.

#3 Todenhöfer is an interesting case, not your run-of-the-mill moonbat. No need to agree with him but he really DOES go where the bullets are flying.
He also managed to get an interview with Assad and asked surprisingly tough questions.
Whatever he is he tries not to be biased. And frankly, the Syrians should sort this out on their own. We have nothing to gain by an intervention.
Assad said that they had captured Al Quaeda ops in Syria. Todenhöfer asked whether he could talk to them with his own translator and without supervision. Assad said yes. That should be interesting.

#4 Ho hum. The sun comes up in the east. AQ terrorists are drawn to conflicts like flies to dung. If there are no conflicts they will start one. Sort of like the admonition of "Let no crisis go to waste."
