U.S. Recognizes Syrian Opposition

By December 11, 2012

Follow me on:

The United States today recognized the Syrian Opposition Council (SOC) as the legitimate government in Syria. CNN, CBS, and other news entities broke the news late in the day.

More later on the diplomatic recognition and what it could mean for the civil war that has engulfed Syria since Spring 2011. For now, you can read about U.S. efforts to expand the SOC, as well as U.S. warnings to Syrian President Bashar al-Assad not to use chemical weapons against the opposition.
