The "Syrian delegation to the United Nations requested that the Security Council...pursue sanctions against the Nusra Front as a terrorist group." The U.S. already considers the group to be a terrorist organization. "French diplomats said Friday that discussions were under way in a Security Council committee to explore that possibility." Meanwhile, in another UN committee meeting just down the hall, Syrian delegates were demanding a definition of terrorism that excludes its preferred targets. Of course, the Security Council could impose a "clean hands" rule, but that would probably worry those busy French diplomats.
