You will recall that on February 25, 2011, the ultra-chic, ultra-liberal Vogue magazine, led by high-profile Obama supporter Anna Wintour, published a fawning profile of Syrian first lady Asma al-Assad by Joan Juliet Buck.
So outrageous was Buck’s story that Seraphic Secret saved the article in the sure knowledge that Vogue would, sooner or later, be called to account for celebrating a mass murderer and his wife.
Of course, we were proven correct. So clueless and disgusting was Buck’s story about the al-Assads that Vogue—Soviet style—flushed the story down the memory hole with nary an explanation.
Now, Joan Juliet Buck, the liberal author of the infamous piece, has penned an apology: My Vogue Interview: Mrs. Assad Duped Me, a self-serving kvetch.
