Obama: Syrian Moderates Have Upper Hand

US President Barack Obama said last night (Wednesday) that the situation in Syria has worsened, but that the country’s moderates have the upper hand.

“Many of the members of the moderate opposition were farmers, doctors, maybe even radio broadcasters. They had no experience in fighting, but I think that their state has improved,” Obama told NPR Radio.
