Topic - Syrian Support Group

Syrian Support Group is a non-governmental organization that was founded by Syrian Ontario resident Louay Sakka, in response to the actions of the Assad regime in the Syrian Civil War. In March of 2012, the group hired former NATO employee Brian Sayers to act as a full-time Washington DC lobbyist, on behalf of intervening in Syria and arming the rebels. Media attention was given to the group starting in June of 2012, and in the following July, the U.S. Treasury Department's Office of Foreign Asset Control gave the organization a license to fund the Free Syrian Army- a fact which became public knowledge on July 27th, when it was reported by Al-Monitor. The story was in turn reported by many other news organizations. - Source: Wikipedia
