US Director of National Intel: Chances of Ousting Assad Slim


US Director of National Intelligence James Clapper announced that due to Syria's agreement to destroy its chemical weapons, the chances to oust Assad from power are diminished.

In a meeting of the Intelligence Committee of the US House of Representatives, Clapper said that they do not see a change in power on the horizon, and that Assad will most likely continue to hold the reins of power in Syria.
