Syria has opened door to US Homeland Security

AP is reporting this afternoon that Syria will give visas to officials from US Homeland Security in order to screen some of the 12,000 Iraqi refugees the UN has selected for resettlement to America this fiscal year.

Syria has agreed to allow U.S. interviewers into the country to screen Iraqi refugees for admission to the United States, clearing a major obstacle to the Bush administration’s resettlement program.
