Reuters Soundbite:

Assistant Secretary Feltman (Dec. 9): "For us it's extremely important to have Robert Ford there to oversee the gathering of the information to help us to understand what's happening, to help us understand how we might best play role in ending the violence, and it's important for the Syrian people to see the U.S. ambassador is there standing with them at the time they are facing tremendous brutality from their own government."
