E-mails released by the secret spilling group WikiLeaks on Friday reveal an attempt by an American-British public relations firm to advise embattled Syrian President Bashar Assad on how to spin the war against his dissidents.

WikiLeaks said earlier this week that it is in the process of publishing material from 2.4 million Syrian emails, which will prove “embarrassing to Syria, but it is also embarrassing to Syria’s opponents.”

According to a report in the Washington Post, the documents have also proved to be embarrassing to Syria’s surrogates in the United States.

The first batch of documents contains communications between the Syrian government and its PR firm Brown Lloyd James (BLJ). The firm has represented several undemocratic regimes in the past, included that of Muammar Gaddafi in Libya. Moreover, it has worked on behalf of supporters of the Mujaheedin-e-Khalq (MEK), an Iranian opposition group identified as a terrorist organization by the US.

In one document, the firm advises the Syrian regime on how to create the appearance it is pursuing reform while repressing the uprising.
