You regurgitate like a well programmed robot.
Syria supported the US at the time of the first Gulf war.
After 9/11, Syria also provided the US with extensive intelligence about al Qaeda. It was an attempt by the elder Assad to move closer to the US. It failed, however.
Evidently the US war on al Qaeda after 9/11 was just a cover story. US support for Al Qaeda in Libya and Syria tends to bear this out.
The recent attack in Benghazi exposed the failed US policy.
