French President Francois Hollande announced today his nation’s official support for the reorganized Anti-Bashar al-Assad political faction in Syria. The group, formally united on Sunday in the goal of forcibly removing Assad, has been steadily growing in power and influence over the past year and a half. In his address, Hollande said “France recognizes the Syrian national coalition as the sole legitimate representative of the Syrian people and as future government of a democratic Syria, allowing it to bring an end to Bashar al-Assad’s regime.”
