Wikileaks to release Syrian emails

The Jerusalem Post is reporting this morning that hackers from WikiLeaks will begin releasing what it calls "The Syria Files." 

Speaking at a press conference today a WikiLeaks spokeswoman said the
material would "shed light on inner workings of Syrian government and on
the hypocrisy of the West and Western companies."  Apparently,
there are no Eastern companies or improper government influence from
Russia, China or Iran which have long supported a genocidal approach to
internal dissent and freedom in Syria.  

WikiLeaks said Thursday it had begun publishing more than 2 million emails from Syrian government officials that would embarrass not only Damascus, which is trying to crush a 16-month rebellion, but also its opponents.

Sarcasm: Russia and Iran must be blameless of all violence with no documented shipments of arms, military trainers, or internal security forces into Syria discovered by WikiLeaks … evidence elsewhere notwithstanding.

Speaking at a press conference in London, a Wikileaks spokeswoman said the emails were from Syrian political figures, government ministries and companies, dating from August 2006 to March 2012.  WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange was quoted in a statement saying: "The material is embarrassing to Syria, but it is also embarrassing to Syria’s opponents."

Question: Who are Syria’s "opponents" when the government is killing its own people?
