A new struggle for Syria is in the making by Patrick Seale

Leverett has benefited from interviews with Assad. His book is a critique of American policy toward Syria - and by implication of the pro-Israeli neoconservatives who have shaped U.S. Middle East policy under the Bush administration. At the recent launch of his book, Leverett claimed that the American administration was moving toward a policy of regime change in Syria.

In short, according to Leverett, the neocons believe that, if sufficient pressure is exercised on Damascus, Bashar will fall from the inside.
