Excerpts from the Arab and Iranian Media & Analysis of US Policy in the Region

Assad: we have better analysts

Wikileaks... of course:

"Asad concurred with the idea of 
overlapping U.S.-Syrian interests in Iraq.  He noted, 
however, that the main obstacle to increased U.S.-Syrian 
security cooperation stemmed from the absence of political 
cooperation.  The U.S. possessed a "huge information 
apparatus" but lacked the ability to analyze this information 
successfully, maintained Asad.  "You're failing in the fight 
against extremism.  While we lack your intelligence 
capabilities, we succeed in fighting extremists because we 
have better analysts," he claimed, attributing the superior 
analysis to living in and understanding the region.
