Connecting the Syrian dots

I don't believe rogue nations (Syria, Iran, N. Korea, etc) cooperate except out of fear of impending trouble. Syria for example has harbored former Iraqi officials, allowed terrorists to use their country as a staging ground to enter Iraq, and quite likely serve as the hiding place for most of the WMD the left keeps asking about. Well, earlier this week, Syria surprisingly helped out the coalition by giving up one of Saddam Hussein's nephews.
Sabaawi was arrested "while distributing money to people to incite them to violence ... and commit crimes during demonstrations in [the town of] Al-Awjah." Security officials said Sabaawi was arrested several days after Syrian authorities forced him to return to Iraq. They spoke in a telephone interview from Cairo.

The Syrians knew where he was hiding in Baghdad and told U.S. authorities. The U.S. military gave the information to Iraq security forces who carried out a "fast, easy" raid on the fugitive's apartment

So, why did Syria decide to expel Sabaawi now? Could it be that senior Syrian officials are about to be implicated in the assassination of former Lebanon Prime Minister Rafik Hariri?
The United Nations investigation into the murder of former Prime Minister Rafik Hariri of Lebanon is focusing on the powerful brother-in-law of President Bashar al-Assad of Syria as the main suspect, a diplomat with intimate knowledge of the inquiry said Thursday. A United Nations report on the February bombing of a convoy carrying Rafik Hariri, a former Lebanese prime minister, said the fiery attack, shown above, was planned by Syrian and Lebanese intelligence officers.
Syria has enough problems with their neighbor to the west they don't want an angry Iraq to their east (especially if the neighbor to the east is supported by the worlds last superpower).
