"I announce today my defection from the killing and terrorist regime and I announce that I have joined the ranks of the freedom and dignity revolution. I announce that I am from today a soldier in this blessed revolution," Hijab said in a written statement read by spokesman Muhammad el-Etri on Al Jazeera on Monday.

"I will fight for this revolution by issuing statements through spokesmen, while staying in a country that isn't full of bullets and bombs and whatnot."

2012-08-06 09:19:30 AM
These guys are basically bailing out now to try to skeeve their way into being the next strongman of whichever regime comes out on top in the post-Assad civil war. Because there's no doubt that he'll be gone, probably before the end of the year, and there's equally little doubt that the transition will make Libya look calm and organized.

Which means he aided and abetted Assad. Previously, he served as governor of two different areas and as agriculture minister. He wasn't just some random guy off the street - he actively participated in Assad's government.

If you wield the rubber stamp, you endorse what you're stamping. Or are you a proponent of the "just following orders" defense that was discarded at Nuremberg?

More analogous to Rudolph Hess than Herman Goering and company (Hess got life and some say he shouldn't have)...but at this point I think it depends upon what sort of information he has and is willing to share about the inner working of the Assad regime.

Hess was certifiably nuts, and only got more so in prison. If the Russians would have agreed to it, I'm guessing he would have been released at some point on medical grounds.

Hess drank so much of the Kool-Aid that he believed Hitler when he said that he didn't want to destroy Great Britain and in fact hoped that Britain would join Germany on an anti-Bolshevik crusade. Nuts? In comparison the rest of the homicidal maniacs running the asylum? If anything Speer was the sane one (actually a glorified water boy for the most part) and Hess somewhere in between.

Speer ran the munitions industry for years--with lots of forced labor. That wasn't just making architectural drawings.

As Hitler's Minister of Armaments and War Production, Speer was so successful that Germany's war production continued to increase despite massive and devastating Allied bombing. After the war, he was tried at Nuremberg and sentenced to 20 years in prison for his role in the Nazi regime, principally for the use of forced labor. He served his full sentence, most of it at Spandau Prison in West Berlin.


Speer was quite sane. He was also one of the few people who could tell the Fuhrer 'no' and had his respect. We're lucky that the Rommels, Speers, and Guderians of the Reich were more than balanced by the Goerings, Himmlers, and Goebbels or the war would have been far bloodier and the outcome much less certain.
