Exiled Syrian opposition figures formed a united front Friday calling for a transitional government to prepare for the overthrow of President Bashar Assad's regime. Calling Assad's regime "despotic and corrupt," they underlined the need for opposition groups in and outside Syria to close ranks to plan for "the desired change and build a democratic system." The meeting was called by Syria's former Vice President Abdul-Halim Khaddam and Ali Sadr el-Din Bayanouni, head of the banned Muslim Brotherhood.
