(Lousy pro-Saudi regime, of course)) Ambassador Ford tells a Saudi paper that his words led to the arming of the Syrian opposition

Ambassador Ford tells his favorite Saudi regime paper, Al-Hayat (the mouthpiece of Khalid bin Sultan) that his words to the Syrian protesters may have resulted in the arming of the Syrian uprising. He says:  "Some people told me that the Syrian opposition understood my visit to Samah as we are going to support it no matter what.  This was not the purpose of the visit and I never said so".  If Syria ever achieves peace, I don't think someone like him will ever be allowed into the country.
