FOR TOMORROWS LINE UP ... Obama’s Belated Syria Hard Line http://www.brookings.edu/opinions/2011/0819_assad_syria_indyk.aspx
Assad, by contrast, had been an ally and partner of America’s would-be nemesis, Iran's Mahmoud Ahmadinejad. Assad turned Syria—an Arab regional power—into a conduit for Iranian influence and troublemaking in the Middle East heartland. He allowed Sunni insurgents access from Syria into Iraq to kill American soldiers. He supplied rockets and other advanced weapons systems to Hizbullah. He gave succor to Hamas, hosting its external headquarters in Damascus. He developed a clandestine nuclear-weapons project in abrogation of Syria's Non-Proliferation Treaty obligations. He used murder and assassination in an attempt to regain control of Lebanon from democratic forces there.

Gary Sick on Clinton's Iran Policy and Martin Indyk http://www.iranaffairs.com/iran_affairs/2008/05/gary-sick-on-cl.html
I have nothing to add to that except to note that Martin Indyk was associated with the Pro-Israeli lobby before he was appointed by Bill Clinton (perhaps as a result of this pre-election promise to AIPAC.) Among other things, Indyk founded the Washington Institute for Near East Policy with AIPAC money, which has since then essentially joined the other "think tanks" like AEI and JINSA as a front and mouthpiece of the NeoCon/AIPAC war cheerleaders.
