Buckingham Palace Takes a Stand Against Syria

Today, British Foreign Secretary William Hague withdrew Syrian Ambassador Sami Khiyami's invitation to tomorrow's Royal Wedding between Prince William and Kate Middleton. In light of Syria's recent actions against unarmed civilians, Hague deemed Khiyami's presence at the festivities to be "unacceptable." For its part, Buckingham Palace concurs with Hague's decision stating "it is not considered appropriate for the Syrian ambassador to attend the wedding."

So there you have it. The British monarchy has taken a stronger stand against Syrian tyranny than has the Obama Administration.
