米国内で反シリア・デモを監視 シリア政府のスパイを起訴というのだが・・・

ニューヨーク・タイムズ紙の記事を読んだら、その男がシリアを訪問して、アサド大統領に直接会ったと書いてある(下線部)。

末端の工作員が大統領に直接面会するなどありえないので、この記事は嘘です。

WASHINGTON ― The Justice Department on Wednesday accused a Syrian-American man of secretly working for a Syrian intelligence service. It said he collected information about people in the United States who were protesting the Syrian government's crackdown on the country's pro-democracy movement, as part of a scheme to "silence, intimidate and potentially harm the protesters."

The man, Mohamad Anas Haitham Soueid, 47, a resident of Leesburg, Va., was arrested on Tuesday and charged with six offenses, including serving as a foreign agent without registering and making false statements, authorities said. They described him as a naturalized American citizen born in Syria.

It also says he was working with an official at the Syrian Embassy in the United States, and that in June the Syrian government paid for him to travel to Syria, where he met with intelligence officials and spoke with the Syrian president, Bashar al-Assad, in private. In addition, the indictment cites a handwritten letter to a Syrian official in which Mr. Soueid is alleged to have expressed the belief that the Syrian government was justified in using violence against protesters and raiding their homes.
