EDITORIAL PICK: Former hostage responds to top diplomat calling Al Qaeda a US ‘asset’ in Syria
In this week’s editorial pick for our Import program, we select an interview from the Grayzone project with former Al Qaeda hostage and Journalist Lindsey Snell.
Description from the Grayzone Project: Lindsey Snell, a journalist who escaped Al Qaeda captivity in Syria, responds to a top US diplomat calling the militant group “an asset” amid a media-enabled PR campaign to whitewash its image. Amid a public relations campaign to rehabilitate the Al Qaeda franchise in Syria — which rules Idlib, Syria’s last militant-controlled province – former top US diplomat James Jeffrey has called the group a US “asset.”
