Commenting on the US change of direction regarding the Assad regime's legitimacy Professor Walid Phares author of "The Coming Revolution: Struggle for Freedom in the Middle East," told Cedars Revolution News (CR News) that "while we surely endorse the push by the US Administration for Assad to step down, we also invite Washington's foreign policy establishment to admit that the policy of engagement with the Baathist dictatorship at the expense of fundamental freedoms of the Syrian people and the liberty of the Lebanese people was wrong. This change of direction which we have called for must become a lesson for the future including for the next stages in Syria and throughout the Arab Spring: no endorsement to regimes based on totalitarian ideolgies, should they be secular or religious."
