newsweek:

We profile the profiles of Syrian first lady Asma-al-Assad, one of which was a very embarrassing piece from Vogue that was published mere days before the crackdown—and was quickly scrubbed from the web. Except not really. Here’s a fun line from that profile, as posted on a random fan site of Bashar al-Assad.

Syria is known as the safest country in the Middle East, possibly because, as the State Department’s Web site says, “the Syrian government conducts intense physical and electronic surveillance of both Syrian citizens and foreign visitors.”

See! Syria’s totally safe you guys because, due to all the monitoring of its citizens, the government knows when danger lurks! Thanks, Skynet.

The photo of the happy couple playing with their kids is a nice touch.
