He explains story behind his viral Instagram photos of Senator John McCain’s meeting with Syria's moderate opposition.Mouaz was born and raised in Damascus, Syria before moving to the United States as a teenager. He is currently the Executive Director for the Syrian Emergency Task Force (SETF) and serves on the Government Relations Committee of the Coalition for a Democratic Syria (CDS). Moustafa spent four and a half years working in Congress before leaving to work briefly with Egypt’s US-based opposition and later with the Libyan Revolution.
