The United States has yet to decide on sanctions against Syria, but Syrian behavior has not improved ahead of a May deadline, the State Department said. “When we have something to announce, we’ll announce it,” State Department spokesman Richard Boucher said Monday when asked about the Syria Accountability Act. Signed by President Bush in December, the act gives Syria six months to end support for Palestinian terrorists, secure its border with Iraq and end its weapons programs before sanctions are imposed.
