U.S. funding Syria opposition

All this talk about Iran’s fingers trying to get into the turmoil pie in Bahrain and elsewhere comes into a bit of perspective, today, with a new WikiLeaks report which says that the opposition that’s basically in the process of toppling the government in Syria is being funded by the United States.

The Washington Post reports that the WikiLeaks documents show that the U.S. State Department has been funding support for the opposition, including financially backing a London-based satellite TV station that’s been beaming anti-government messages into Syria.

Al Jazeera is reporting that, as the unrest in Syria is spreading across the nation, President Bashar al-Assad is loosening emergency restrictions that had been in place.
