Apparently that near-total fealty hasn't been enough for Graham to earn a little loyalty in return.

Security Council. U.S. deputy ambassador Richard Mills urged the Security Council to “do everything in its power” to prevent Bashar Assad's government from blocking agreement on a new constitution in 2020.
