The "Syria Accountability and Lebanese Sovereignty Restoration Act of 2003," H. R. 1828, 108th Congress, 1st Session, was intended "To halt Syrian support for terrorism, end its occupation of Lebanon, stop its development of Weapons of Mass Destruction, cease its illegal importation of Iraqi oil and illegal shipments of weapons and other military items to Iraq, and by so doing hold Syria accountable for the serious international security problems it has caused in the Middle East, and for other purposes."
