Bashar al-Assad and Asma al-Assad

What's the Deal With Syria and Its First Couple?

Syria is in the middle of a brutal civil war and tonight President Obama made his case to the American people that its dictator, Bashar al-Assad, must be stopped after his goverment allegedly gassed 1,400 of its citizens. Oppressive, gruesome, and sickening were some of the words Obama used to describe the Assad regime and its actions. But with the help of Vogue and Instagram, the Syrian president and his wife, Asma, have been on a campaign to hide the ugliness involved with ruling a sectarian country with an iron fist. To help you understand the situation in Syria as Congress weighs whether to authorize force should a diplomatic effort to rid Syria of chemical weapons fail, we're giving you an inside look at the country's first couple. Now you'll know exactly who the international community is dealing with.

The tone of this video is so outrageously inappropriate. Seriously Pop sugar, you actually thought it was OK to use "don't get it twisted" and "Kate Middle-Eastern" in a story about someone who is killing thousands of people in what amounts to a genocide? If this is your best attempt at covering actual news items, you should stick to celeb updates. Not only is this piece unprofessional, it is seriously offensive should be removed from your site immediately.
