According to the information obtained, these messages were relayed to Assad through the cyber world. These 'couriers' not only used Facebook and Twitter, but they also delivered information through Skype, Gmail and Yahoo messenger systems, which are notoriously hard to track. These 'couriers' sent information once a week through a very special coding system. In certain special situations, information was delivered through an 'emergency' code. The 'couriers' would try to determine what the public's stance on Syria was in the various nations they went to, while also attempted to gather information by going into collaboration with military and intelligence circles.
KEPT CONFIDENTIALIn order to keep the names of Assad's 'couriers' under wraps, only extremely close individuals to the Syrian leader and high-level officials from Syria's National Intelligence Organization Al Mukhabarat were informed of their identities. The majority of 'couriers' selected from the military were members of special troops referred to as the National Guard Army. It is speculated that the over 50 specially designated 'couriers' by Assad have not returned to Syria since they went abroad. The military members have supposedly taken refuge in the various nations they were sent to, while a number of the civilians who were made Assad's 'couriers' have managed to erase their tracks. The fact that a majority of these individuals, known for their loyalty to Damascus have sought shelter and attempted to erase their tracks is being attributed to the chaos and mortal fear that has erupted in Syria.
