Syrian defection

In protest of the brutal government of Bashar al-Assad, more and more Syrian officials are joining the opposition government. Most recently, Abdu Hussameldin, a senior official of Syria's Oil Ministry defected to the opposition. While Hussameldin's defection is not crippling to the regime itself, it marks a moral and political inspiration to other defectors. Analysts believe this is only the beginning of the defections.
