Just a small reminder of one of the main reasons why Syrian Opposition figures abroad do not have any right to claim they care for the Syrian People:
If you live in the USA and before you receive the US citizenship you must take an oath in a special ceremony, the oath says:
Now, keep in mind that Syria is not a US ally, on the contrary, it's one of the US main foes especially when it comes to the Middle East region affairs, and we should remember the following important notes:
1) US then Undersecretary of State (don't know what he was doing under her though!) then John Bolton gave a speech on May 6, 2002 entitled "Beyond the Axis of Evil" and included Syria in that axis, and it wasn't removed after. (See why he included Syria but try not to laugh).
2) Syria is in an official state of war with israel, israel is the illegal child of NATO, and NATO is run by the USA rendering the USA as a foe state for Syria. Now as funny as it may sounds, but Syria lifted the state of emergency the US criticizes it for on April 20, 2011, although it's still in a state of war with israel, while USA is under Emergency Law since 2000 and it's not in any state of war, last extension for one year was on June 20, 2011.!
3) USA directly fought wars with Syria over and in Lebanon 1982, preached Syria's sovereignty in 2008 and droned a house of a family mistaking it for a terrorist camp (of course FoxNews sees any of the others as a terrorist), continues to supply israel, even at the account of its own citizens, with the latest advanced weapons, technology, money, total support in international organizations to the extent that if you need to become a president of the USA you need to compete with giving it the most. (Obama: No other administration in the US history "has done more in support of israel's security" than his).
4) USA was and still involved in covert operations in Syria including backing oppositions abroad and inside the country to topple the existing government (an act of war of course, and imagine the opposite!!) with US Tax Payers money even when it faced the worst economic crisis recently.
For the few reasons mentioned above and so many others like sanctions, media distortion campaigns, assisting in assassinating Syrian army officers, and so on, a holder of a US passport doesn't practically have any right to interfere in Syria's policies, politics, lifestyle, interests... at all.
