Clinton: U.S. Considering Syria Aid

The White House is considering providing more aid to the Syrian rebels as casualties amass in their ongoing civil war. “I’m sure we will do more in the weeks ahead,” Secretary of State Hillary Clinton told a conference Thursday. “If this were a straightforward challenge I think we would all have reached a conclusion and have unified behind exactly what we are going to do, and how to do it.” The U.S. has not yet joined Britain, France, and others in recognizing the newly formed Syrian National Coalition, but privately officials say a decision is imminent.
