At Damascus' "Iraq Security Conference", US official criticizes host for "giving safe haven to terrorists"

"...The criticism contrasts with the position of Washington's Western allies, including Britain, which praised Damascus for preventing foreign fighters from infiltrating Iraq."The American diplomat's speech was blunt and short. The United States was the only country at the conference to criticize Syria openly," one of the delegates said...Saudi Arabia, which has major disagreements with Syria over Lebanon and Iran, has not attended the conference"
