9:11 am
medic, on the mass of those i felt that i am the ambassadors. enum, western ambassadors have a concept in that heads that decide the fit in people unappetizing, that food and pupil anew. abdul respond to the 3rd and pupil i had a meeting with booth, anus shaw band with presidency. and i said, because of the internet, because the satellite, tv eyed people will know the world will know what you do. and if you shoot a lot of people, if you kill a lot of people, every one is going to know every one in syria and every one around the world and you will be condemned. you have to a mister tactics the us offered to help us. i'd engage in talks with opposition leaders while they thought the was still time. what they would say is yes, we welcome that discussion. can you even help us organize it?
9:12 am
we said we would try, but every time we got close to a discussion, ah, the syrian secret police would move in and break up meetings or arrest people. mm. internally, assad government was divided between those who favor taking a tough line on others who wanted to adopt a more moderate approach. asada noticed he would make a speech on the 30th of march 2011. 0, you feel that the speech really willing obese will bring solution because we are fried from where we were situation. we go. and in the 1st months, actually i went to the bazaar 2 times. i said it must be renew, hey anaconda is minnesota,

which is at min assess even us sold by law savvy on had it. no, i should be in nor artillery for could up to laurie. sally already said it, the lady was, i fear not been in hell and to look nor lunesta a bit will mad at that time in yula will could 20 not for shadow can nice bustle talk sadly. what little men off he can know. yeah, anymore. i don't know enough a libby like a shot. my thought will be a slot. who will be? i'm in a slot than subject up of you for who about that? i don't believe i'd be. i'd like the out of my ludo thought she might be wednesday than i really. why bill is jemma i there are no, none of it. none of a hello. emily driven than the head of
9:14 am
the building is just now beside him after them. a posse lotta lotta, where the hoodie, latina monica leon for anna was al ambia when he finished 8. so remember when in my office it's as if we're with it is more of them for to build on. and it's only the silence and ice that believe that the wasp will coming. we are going to the war. yes. for oneself. as i said, man, i thus giddy loud asia hoodie. it with her while law dictates or how quickly will that then but that e. deb hey, i don't understand totally except to learn azure the toa must villa on this matter either. web b. well let us hate for kara lab. no. oh, his name is sarah, east london. warmerston. if you any more nor have the corolla,
9:15 am
i mean the still luck will more than it be in all. oh, had the shop. oh, my be silly swati oh, assad's 1st move was to crack down the protesters. ah oh, but this simply spurred on his opponents who themselves began to take up arms. their ranks were bolstered by soldiers deserted the syrian army. soon they received international support. that's easy because they open the war all over the country. i mean, it's much easier to fight the war along your border. but whenever i saw the president, it would say we're going to be here and we're going to fight and we are going to be victorious. we will prevail, no problem. no, not that how painful it is,
9:16 am
but at the end we will prevent. ah! by the summer of 2011 simeon government forces had lost control of half the country . media images circulated, showing the widespread killing of any opposition the world watched in shock. on serious acids position, weakened and western governments turned against him. mary lou, i have indicated repeatedly that present alice out as lost legitimacy that he needs to step down. rather than drag his country in the civil war, he should move in the direction of the political transition. the view in the white house was as sad, is essentially finished and he is finished near term.
9:17 am
and our concern in the white house is that he may be finished before the president of the united states says he should be finished. therefore, we need to get the president up to make the statement to be on the right side of history before it happens. ah, this was quite a turn around for a president who had previously managed to project a very positive image to western leaders. he speaks english, he's a handsome man, wedding suit under thigh, and therefore one was an official used to come to him before the war. they say to him, well, as you are western educated, he was didn't indicate that he's put them in the left for 2 years. and then the
9:18 am
west thinks that's why he is good. that's why his flexible, that's why he's enlightened because he is westernized, means he has like us. you know, it means we'll give him the honor to describe him that he is one like us. but he is syrian, ah, the war caused a massive refugee exodus as hundreds of thousands and then millions of syrians flagged the fighting. this increasingly drew eastern european and other western countries into the whole crisis. france became one of the louder voices calling on our side to step done with. we saw that also clue policy. all good. super showed us that it would be from political book you'd want buffy of, couldn't read both bought you in june 2012. the un organize
9:19 am
a conference in june, attended by the u. s. russia, china and britain. it agreed to set up a transitional body in damascus, involving the government and the opposition. but when you are secretary of state, hillary clinton suggested that aside should 1st step done. russian foreign minister loved av showed concern is clear to us by 2012. he would only negotiate under pressure. we hoped we hoped that the russians would apply that pressure. what does he put on the list and you know, like you don't and even though to go, what i found traditional, pretty cheap with losses shore would be, well, that was the soft tea along with did it for him. she was, you know, big e, her love off, and i need to know how to do the inference was that russian president vladimir
9:20 am
putin chose to protect aside as syrian leader, russia had a naval base there. and putin did not support the revolutions of the so called arab spring, or the idea that western countries were champions of human rights. was there. oh, i see where, you know, put on because of look over mostly hostile buffer us with need infection. was special marked oil. what could you? i didn't kritisha go right with you. and then you are no sir. but missouri, emily, windows. okay. well, i got them is 14 is only going to dress them this she lived with and she thought they chalet nearly my low level breadth of diplomacy stalled. so western governments led by the us and france increased their support for the syrian opposition in exile and its armed wing, the free syrian army. what can we do to accelerate that process? the united states and other governments decided that they would try to coalesce,
9:21 am
the opposition provide it support so that it was strong enough to at a minimum, negotiate a transition in syria. oh, the west port. hundreds of millions of heroes and dollars into weapons and training programs for the soviet position. with this level of support, the opposition succeeded in gaining ground to until government forces shown here in red, controlled only a 3rd of the contract. ah, my early 2013 asada was becoming increasingly isolated. he rarely left the
9:22 am
presidential palace and several former allies defected, only the continued support of russia. iran and the armed lebanese group has bhalla, enabled the government to avoid defeat. with what i've been, where time when i felt that things are very, very difficult. and when i felt that it could be the last see it, i live and because we had only let them look washburn leopard, dan said i will learn live and fight and die. and celia newman, ah, with this strategy began to pay dividends.
9:23 am
i sat supporters rallied around him and he built a firm following among the middle class and the other white and christian minority communities. at the same time, the west also began to lose patience with the syrian opposition move. if your own avenue have an opposition strong enough to take on a standing army and a regime with security forces that's backed by russia and iran, then you needed to be powerful and united. and i think one of the challenges we faced was it turned out, the opposition was neither strong nor united self does any more deeply poor. should your keys at nancy more proportion. you get down genesee c, a l. d. in. if you will, if you, if you will because she was at boni, as from what i me them all her sit to and i to push out,
9:24 am
ah, with the opposition. however, certain armed groups began to gain more info than others were getting stronger. they had money, they had ammunition, they had food, they could pay salaries to their fighters. a lot of young syrians are joining them . i recommended and i know colleagues at the cia recommended that we helped those more moderate elements, who were on the one hand, competing with the al qaeda affiliate in syria, called the nurse her front. and on the other hand, were fighting asa the moderate opposition was therefore forced to fight on 2 fronts . and asada was present the west with a greater challenge and thoughtful thought on the murat hudson huddled civil cut
9:25 am
them a lot on the 21st of august 2030 syrian government forces used chemical weapons against opposition held areas. hundreds of people were killed, including many children. i saw had visited troops nearby, 20 days before the time. oh, i do with the, with the u. s. it announced a year before the chemical weapons were a red line not to be crossed. any use they said will be met with an american
9:26 am
response. france also said 8 will be prepared to support the us with a or power. ah, president obama has the military to prepare for quite a significant response. some of the senior syrian officials sent their families out of damascus because they were worried. ah, then you might get more fighting in damascus itself. it would have been physically devastating for ah, for physical assets of the syrian regime. the precision that i know it would have reduced to, to almost 0. the potential for non combat to be killed. a few hours before the plant strikes, obama called
9:27 am
a white house crisis meeting. there was a long national security council meeting that was focused. it's fair to say more on how to go about military response than whether the turning point moment was when to president came to the conclusion that he changed his mind lawsuits. lou christa, america, a pin, the whole say, look, is obama of actually good say to play or is almost no. so if you see lou, lou foreclosure confused and to top wife. and you know, we generate the money to buy his chip. what i want to do that tell me how to sell it. don't you pickups it for me? sure. am all that bonaparte completed is on his major
9:28 am
concern. is that the day after at american strike gas, i would still be there and might even use chemical weapons again. so then we have to hit again and maybe this time a bit harder and take out some more air defense. and then again, the logic would be to escalate into a bigger strike. and i think the president concerned was he would not be in control of that decision. but be awesome. mm. mm. question the narrative. identify who is telling the story their motivation. these are multi national corporations that are interested in profit. the listening pays the key, constructs the media on al jazeera a
9:29 am
guess with from the villas of characters. so the battle fields around, most of our job is to get to the truth and empower people through knowledge. from the al jazeera london broke off fantastic to people in thoughtful conversation. we were 1st generation of blackberry people and we had to really find our way with no hope and no limitation. the world is a much smaller play. we do better to get away with these regional boundaries, films. i think you're in a meeting and come right back in. you think about racism?
9:30 am
thinking certainly have is making us invisible today. be unscripted on out there. ah, ah. you're watching on there with me. so robin in doha, reminder of our top news stories and breaking news coming out to see don, the political forces say that they've reached agreement, that would reinstate of dela handle because the country's prime minister, nearly a month after the military seas tower in a qu, hipaa morgan has bought from cotton. we've been speaking to several members of the resistance committees, the committees that happened organizing protests as well as some political parties . many of them say that while prime minister may be the symbol of the transitional government, they don't want a deal with the army. they don't want.
