US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said on Wednesday that the Syrian National Council “can no longer be viewed as the visible leader of the opposition” and a new opposition should be formed.
This is as the UN Human Rights body has reacted to the video of posted on the web that shows insurgents in Syria executing soldiers, saying the video probably shows “war crimes.” On Thursday, video footage circulated the web showing foreign-backed insurgents killing Syrian soldiers execution-style at a checkpoint in the crisis-hit country. The insurgents beat about 10 soldiers before executing them with automatic rifles.
So why would the US now be concerned about this when they have been supporting these extremists in the first place?
Press TV’s News Analysis has conducted an interview with Danny Makki, the co-founder of the Syrian Youth in Britain, from London, Richard Becker of the A.N.S.W.E.R. Coalition, from San Francisco, and Jihad Markada, a political commentator from Beirut to further discuss the issue.
