"Syrian President Bashar al-Assad defied expectations and dashed widespread hopes during an anticipated nationally televised speech Wednesday when he made no mention of lifting a state of emergency. In his rambling 45-minute speech to the National Assembly, he acknowledged that Syrians want reform and that the government has not met their needs." (03/30/11)
