Rafiq Hariri Center at the Atlantic Council

"Has the Atlantic Council's long slide into insignificance descended so low as to be the servant of Saudi/Hariri money (same thing in my opinion) in order to fund this crappy little center within its very bowels?  The Saudis have long desired the consolidation of Sunni/Wahhabi power in North Arabia.  This paper serves that policy goal.  The non-Islamist Syrian rebels are a ghost army that will never amount to anything.  The alternative to the present Syrian Government is an Islamist regime in Damascus. The Israeli/Zionist policy appears to be the creation of chaos and pauperization in the ME among their opponents.  I suppose that explains WINEP support of this stupid paper."
