The following is a false story. It is a fabricated piece of positive news. Unlike the widespread use of fabricated negative Syria news which often made its way to Washington through numerous sites and blogs that Washington supports or trusts, such as some Syrian opposition or Lebanese March14th sites.
American Middle East policies are affected by the systematic distortion of the facts… and probably one of the reasons why President Bush never wanted to meet the Syrian president for the past seven years.

WASHINGTON (APF) — US President George W. Bush will make his first trip to Syria in January, hoping to help forge a peace deal between Syria and Israel before he leaves office one year later, his spokeswoman said Thursday.
Analysts expect the president to also discuss Syria's role in facilitating Lebanon's presidential elections.
The January 8-16 visit will also take him to Kuwait, Bahrain, the United Arab Emirates, Saudi Arabia, and Egypt to promote talks launched at a peace conference in Annapolis, Maryland, late last month, said Dana Perino.
The President will indeed visit The Kingdom of Bahrain (253 sq mi), but will NOT visit Syria.
To find the extent of the fabrication of negative Syria news, read my earlier post below which has numerous examples.
