According to the website, The US State Department has transferred 6 million dollars to Syrian opposition supporters since 2006. The funds were meant for financing the Barada TV London-based television channel, which broadcasts to Syria. The channel sought to discredit the Bashar Assad regime. Funds were also allocated for opposition activities inside Syria.
