Rubio: Syrian Government Must be Able to Lead


Against the backdrop of rebel forces firing on the palace of Syrian President Bashar Al-Assad, visiting United States Senator Marco Rubio told an Israeli news conference, Thursday, that the leadership that succeeds Al-Assad must be assisted to "become the best-organized, the best-funded, the best-armed, the best equipped and the most capable post-Assad force on the ground in Syria."

The Florida Republican also said the U.S. must continue to identify "actors that will be responsible, not just in this conflict but in the aftermath of this conflict".
