ecretary of State Hillary Clinton on Wednesday called for an overhaul of the leadership of Syria's rebel opposition, which is locked in a bloody stalemate with the regime of President Bashar al-Assad. Making her remarks during a visit to Croatia, Clinton said the Syrian National Council, composed largely of Syrian exiles, should be augmented with those on "the front lines fighting and dying to obtain their freedom." Analysts said the shift marked a more proactive attempt by the Obama administration to craft a more credible opposition movement.
