Jack Murphy, SOFREP’s Editor-in-Chief, is currently in Syria participating in a conference held by the British Syrian society. Yesterday, Jack was given the rare opportunity to interview President Bashar al-Assad.

After being escorted into the atrium of the presidential palace we were told that we could walk upstairs to meet the president. I walked up the white marble steps with my head down until I heard someone say, “Hello, welcome.” I looked up and shook hands with President Bashar al-Assad.

With a small group of journalists I was permitted to interview the President of Syria on a range of issues that included war crimes, the importance of Assad to the Syrian state, the Russian presence in Syria, and what the future holds for a country that has been traumatized by war.- Jack Murphy

SOFREP will publish Jack’s full interview with President Assad soon.

Jack was on ‘The Wilkow Majority on Sirius XM Patriot 125’ today, you can listen to him on the show below.
