Another Security Council meeting today…As before, the last speaker, once again, was Syrian Ambassador Bashar Jaafari. Syria is not a Security Council member, but under the guidelines in place, whenever a country becomes the subject of a Security Council debate, its representative is recognized to speak.

You can slide the pointer back and forth through the two-hour video, and you won’t find a more truth-packed set of comments (yes, the Russian ambassador’s speech was admirable, but did not contain the same level of hard-truth as Jaafari’s).
