This past week, Al Jazeera presenter Mehdi Hasan sat down with Saudi Arabia’s ambassador to the UN. He asked him a very pointed question regarding why he supports democracy in Syria but not in Saudi Arabia.
It’s a great question, and let’s just say the answer was not at all convincing.

Speak truth to power.
Well done Mr. Hasan. The entire interview can be watched here.
