Syria's president faulted the Obama administration Thursday for failing to follow up on its stated goal of Mideast peace with action and said time was running out. President Bashar Assad's critique comes despite US efforts to improve relations with Syria that were strained throughout much of the Bush administration. "Until now, we have only heard headlines, but there have been no discussions with the concerned parties, including Syria," Assad told reporters at a press conference in Damascus. "But what is the process that will take you from the headline to the goal?" Assad, who met Thursday with Finnish President Tarja Halonen, urged Europe to take a more active role in peacemaking.
