I Was Gassed by Assad
Qusai Zakarya, Foreign Policy
Every time I see President Barack Obama speak on television, I have horrible flashbacks. My eyes are burning, I struggle to breathe, and when I inhale, the air stabs my lungs like a thousand daggers. A young child lies glassy-eyed in my arms, I load him into a truck, and then the world turns sideways and goes black.
TAGGED: Bashar Al-Assad, Syria, ISIS
