Clinton calls for release of Syrian activist

By CNN's Susan Garraty

Former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton is demanding the release of kidnapped Syrian lawyer and human rights activist Razan Zaitouneh. Zaitouneh, her husband and two other human rights activists were abducted from offices in Douma, Syria in December, 2013. No group is taking responsibility for the kidnapping. The day before her disappearance, Zaitouneh published a highly critical assesment of the now infamous ISIS militants

“We will not forget her. We will not forget the work she did, we will not forget the abuses she exposed, or the hope she cherished, the hope for a more peaceful and eventually democratic Syria,” Clinton said while giving the Vital Voices Global Trailblazer Award to Rana Zaitouneh, who accepted the recognition on behalf of her sister at a ceremony at the Kennedy Center in Washington.

Taking boots on the ground off the table, the President supports a collaborative and political approach. He pledged to work with Congress to “ramp up” support for elements of the Syrian opposition who "offer the best alternative to terrorists and a brutal dictator."
