The move was designed to build Western support against the Syrian government by alleviating fears that money and weapons donated to the opposition would flow to a militant group. The designation means that Americans cannot have financial ties to the Nusra Front and is meant to be a precedent for other nations considering imposing similar sanctions on the group.

About thirty years ago I was one of two production cameramen on an industrial film for a leading manufacturer of some of the earliest versions of today’s mobile devices. It was a stressful shoot. The script had undergone many changes up to and including the actual shoot days.
