This is a scandal. It really is and won't be covered because the Western and Arab (Saudi and Qatari-funded) media won't report on it. Basically, the GCC-led Arab League created an Arab monitoring group in Syria and the idea was supported by the Syrian National Council. When the report of the group came out against the wishes of the GCC and its Western patrons, it was simply canceled and they simply moved to plan B. No explanation was given and no attempt to even release and discuss the report. The report was attacked in Saudi and Qatari media before it was even released, and the staging of the "defector" from the group was part of the propaganda operation.
