Obama Clears $10 Million in Aid for Syrian Opposition

President Barack Obama authorized the release of as much as $10 million in additional aid to rebels trying to oust Syrian President Bashar al-Assad.

The president, in a directive to the secretaries of state and defense, said today the U.S. would draw on the inventories of government agencies to provide “non-lethal commodities and services,” as well as food and medical supplies.
