U.S. Moving to Recognize Syrian Opposition

In an effort to end the violence in Syria and give legitimacy to the militia groups opposing President Bashar al-Assad, the United States is moving toward recognizing the Syrian opposition as the legitimate representative of the Syrian people.

American officials said Thursday that as soon as the opposition fully develops its political structure, the United States plans on holding a meeting to discuss the issue, which will most likely be announced at the Friends of Syria meeting in Morocco on December 12th which will be attended by Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.
