      In his Feb. 20 Los Angeles Times article entitled "Syria Works to Polish Its Image," correspondent John Daniszewski appears to have joined the official Syrian public relations campaign. The reporter obscures Syrian involvement in chemical and biological weapons, covers up the government's support for Hizballah and other terrorist groups, and distorts Syria's position vis-í -vis peace with Israel.
