"The Treasury Department's Office of Foreign Assets Control approved a license last week allowing the Syrian Support Group "to engage in otherwise prohibited financial activities with the Free Syrian Army," Treasury spokesman John Sullivan said Tuesday. ... The Syrian Support Group was established earlier this year to lobby for U.S. backing for the Free Syrian Army. It includes Syrian expatriates and works with retired Syrian military officers, Louay Sakka, a Syrian-Canadian co-founder of the group, said in a June interview. Mr. Sayers, its director of government relations, is a former political officer at the North Atlantic Treaty Organization."
