Syria and the Broken Spear Vision

George Panyne and I recording The Broken Spear Vision in the new studio for WRFR Rochester Free Radio

I was with a group of 5 Americans, 3 Canadians and an Irishman who went to observe the Syrian election, but there were other observers from Asia, Africa and South America.
