WASHINGTON (AP) -- President Barack Obama declared Syria's main opposition group the sole "legitimate representative" of its country's people Tuesday, deeming the move "a big step" in the international diplomatic efforts to end Syrian President Bashar Assad's embattled regime.
Obama said the newly formed Syrian Opposition Council "is now inclusive enough" to be granted the elevated status, which paves the way for the greater U.S. support for the organization.

that is evil
Maybe they will now be sent F16’s and latest-generation tanks by nobama?
Anyone wanting on or off this ping list, please advise.
this a big time mistake
it is a civil war in progress - both sides are proclaimed enemies of the US and Israel - one is secular, the other Islamist, and both sides hate you and me - the US should keep their hands off.
Exalted Supreme Ruler of the World, the Honorable Muslim King Barack Hussein Obama declares..... blah, blah, blah.....
Just think, in a little over a month from now, we will have only 4 more years of this bastard son of a communist whore. Actually, I don’t see this arrogant ass leaving, even after 4 more years....
“Obama said the newly formed Syrian Opposition Council “is now inclusive enough” to be granted the elevated status, which paves the way for the greater U.S. support for the organization.”
Secretary of State Hillary Clinton will not attend the Dec. 12 meeting of the Friends of Syria in Morocco due to a lingering stomach ailment.
Clinton was expected to make news at the event by formally recognizing the National Coalition for Syrian Revolutionary and Opposition Forces, the new opposition leadership organization put together last month in Doha with the help of the State Department, as the legitimate representative of the Syrian people. That designation would pave the way for the U.S. to increase its aid to the Syrian opposition....
Mustafa Sabbagh, secretary general of the National Coalition for Syrian Revolutionary and Opposition Forces, said in Bahrain that he thinks the U.S. will recognize his council as the legitimate representative of the Syrian people in Morocco....

There is no way this Syria thing is going to end well /incredibly obvious statement.
Is that the AlQada terrorist faction that Obama has been not so secretly arming with Libyan weapons?
...all players in DC evil
No kidding, and since this is America land of the free I will not say anything mean about oboma because I do not want my name on a list so I pray that God helps the man with some divine discomfort
Who would have thought, that in just a little over ten years after 911, we would have a black Marxist (maybe even muslim) President named Hussein, who would be arming Al Qeda with our tax dollars all over the Middle East?
It is like living in an alternate ugly universe these days. When are the American people going to wake the hell up?
Obama, our first Muslim President, isn't just a Muslim, he supports Muslim terrorism.
Arab Spring? It's about overthrowing governments and replacing them with Muslim radicals.
Egypt: Muslim Brotherhood firmly in control. US $$ dumped to support a radical government.
Libya: Rebels given US weapons to overthrow Ghadafi. Rebels include Al Qaeda.
Iraq: US Troops pulled not for US sake, it's for terrorist attacks for government overthrow.
Syria: Obama is dumping weapons to rebels. Same as Libya.
Americans: Obama thinks they are idiots.
Well, they did let him get re-elected.
The President of the US is allied openly with Al Queda now operating in Syria with USA taxpayer funding and USA provided arms. Goal is Islamic republic for Syria. I hope Syria defeats Al Queda. They are our only hope - how about them apples?
