Every few hours on state television alleged insurgents confess in gripping detail.
One man said he stalked ten college girls who were translators for the U.S. army, then raped and murdered them. Another said he beheaded ten people after first practicing on animals.
More than twenty confessions have aired this week. Many said they had ties to Syrian intelligence. U.S. officials have not been able to verify those claims.
The program's goals are to convince people the security forces are defeating insurgents, and lift the police's own moral. Police wanted to televise the confessions to inspire people to give tips, but they've had the unexpected effect of turning public opinion here against Syria.
