Brian Sayers – Syrian Support Group

While some Arab states are actively funding the Syrian opposition, the West has publicly refused to provide arms.

The US, in particular, has been criticised for its reluctance to get involved beyond talks and diplomacy.

Brian Sayers is a lobbyist for a US-based non-profit organisation. The Syrian Support Group has been given the green light by the US Treasury to raise money for the Free Syrian Army despite the fears that the FSA might have links to extremist groups in the region.

The Syrian Support Group insists that the money raised will not get into the wrong hands. How can they be sure?
