U.S. Licensing High-Tech Exports to Syria Under U.N. Development Program

After years of harsh talk and escalating rounds of sanctions against Syria for supporting terror and seeking weapons of mass destruction, the United States is quietly supporting a United Nations program to supply the Syrian regime with sophisticated surveillance equipment and computers to monitor its borders.

What’s going on?

It appears that UNDP, the U.S., and yet another partner in Syria’s “customs modernization,” the European Union, have been engaged in a game of incentive diplomacy with the Assad regime, quietly laying the building blocks for a broader trade-for-peace framework with Syria and its neighbors while talking tough and brandishing trade and financial cudgels that are less than meet the eye.

Well.. it seems that the Bush Administration are using the UN as a backdoor to trade sensitive technology with Syria. Apparently Cisco's profits are more important than any real threat that Syria poses, or the people that are killed by the terrorists Syria supports.

Does this mean the war on terror is a sham?
