Earlier today, I posted a piece on the New York Review of Books Blog entitled “Syrian Torture: What the US Must Do,”  regarding the evidence of Syrian mass murder and torture:

“President Obama’s State of the Union address last week took an hour and five minutes, of which he devoted less than fifteen seconds to Syria […] He didn’t mention the chilling new evidence of mass murder and torture by the Assad regime—atrocities that, if the documentation is genuine, appear to have affected far more Syrians than have chemical weapons. Nor has the US press devoted much attention to these findings, though they raise complicated new questions about the Syrian conflict.”
