Former Syrian vice president Abdul-Halim Khaddam announced Friday morning that he intended to lead a revolution in the Syrian regime in order to bring about President Bashar Assad's ouster. He said that such an undertaking would be achieved with the help of Syrian opposition movements and foreign governments, according to Army Radio. Last week Khaddam implicated Assad in playing a role in the assassination of former Lebanese prime minister Rafik Hariri.
