Syrian Opposition Leader Has Ties To Indiana

Syria's exiled opposition forces have chosen a naturalized U.S. citizen from Texas with  ties to Indiana as its leader. Ghassan Hitto is a 50-year old Syrian native born in Damascus who later immigrated to the United States where he earned a math and science degree from IUPUI in 1989 and an MBA degree from Indiana Wesleyan University in 1994. Hitto worked in Wayne, Texas for Inovar, an electronics firm, for the past 11 years before he departed the U.S. last year destined for Turkey to join the Syrian opposition forces where the CIA has been covertly aiding the opposition's efforts to overthrow Syrian President Bashar al-Assad's government.

Hitto and his wife, Suzanne, have four children who were all born in the United States according to the New York Times. Hitto, not surprisingly, was the choice of Syria's Muslim Brotherhood, a radical Islamic group that seems to have a lot of credibility with the Obama administration for some very strange reason. Brotherhood leaders claim they seek a new civil government but many rightfully fear the same thing will happen in Syria as occurred when an American citizen, Mohamed Morsi, became Egypt's new president with the support of the Muslim Brotherhood and the Obama administration. Civil rights in Egypt have been thrown back into the stone age in a very short period of time as the Morsi government has moved to impose religious law in place of civil laws with horrifying consequences to the country's women, Coptic Christians and other minority groups.

Maybe we should not be surprised, Gary, that the Syria's Muslim Brotherhood seems to have a lot of credibility with the Obama administration. 3/13/10, Deanna Spingola, on line report at Spingola.com, explained,
