Archaeo-Blogger Acknowledges Assad Regime Involvement
In a long post, archaeo-blogger Sam Hardy has examined the involvement of the Assad regime in looting at Palmyra before the site fell into ISIS' hands. He deserves kudos for doing so now given the unexplained relucatance of the archaeological lobby to criticize the Assad regime in the past. Still, as always, caution is warranted given the untrustworthy nature of most media sources in the region upon which Hardy has relied for this and other blog posts he has made in the past.
