      Defecting Syrian Ambassador Pledges Rebel Allegiance


      Al-Jazzeera ran a video Wednesday night depicting Syrian Ambassador to Iraq Nawef Fares announcing his resignation and defection to the side of the Syrian rebels.

      “From now, I support the Syrian revolution. Where is the honor in Killing your own people? where is national unity? Loyalty is to the people, not to a murderous dictator,” said Fares.
