It appears the pressure on Syria is paying off:
President Bush yesterday said there are “positive signs” that Syria will expel all Iraqi leaders seeking refuge there, easing concerns that Damascus would be the next target of military action.
Just hours after Mr. Bush’s comments, the surrenders of two Iraqi officials on the U.S. most-wanted list were announced.
“I’m confident the Syrian government has heard us,” Mr. Bush said after attending Easter church services at Fort Hood near his Texas ranch.
“I believe it when they say they want to cooperate with us,” the president said.
“Want” may not be the right choice of words. But we’ll take it.
