US planned to overthrow Assad in 2006, media reports

The US planned to overthrow Syrian President Bashar Assad in December 2006. To do so, the American leadership tried to destabilize the situation in the region, according to regular revelations of Wikileaks published today in the Lebanese newspaper ‘Al-Akhbar’.

According to the article, the source of compromising evidence was classified material leaked from the US embassy in Damascus: the US ambassador to Syria, William Roebuck, who was then in Damascus, sent an important document, which referred to the plan to overthrow the Syrian leadership.
