WASHINGTON - President Barack Obama said on Wednesday he believes the situation in Syria has deteriorated but the hand of the moderate opposition may be stronger.



"I think in many ways the conditions are worse. But the capacity of some of the opposition is better than it was before, which is understandable," he said in an interview with NPR News.



Excerpts of the radio interview were made public on Wednesday. The full interview is scheduled to air on Thursday.
