"Washington is going to return an ambassador to Damascus, Syrian Embassy officials informed Congressional aides Tuesday night, according to a missive obtained by The Cable.

Acting Assistant Secretary for Near Eastern Affairs Jeffrey Feltman reportedly informed Syrian ambassador to Washington Imad Mustapha of the decision this afternoon. No word yet on who the ambassador will be. Earlier this month, a U.S. military mission visited Syria to discuss in particular cooperation on stopping the flow of insurgents into Iraq."
