The BBC says:

The United States has accused North Korea of helping Syria build a nuclear reactor that "was not intended for peaceful purposes".

The site, said to be like one in North Korea, was bombed by Israel in 2007.

Syria must "come clean" about its secret nuclear programme, the White House said in a statement after CIA officials briefed members of Congress.

Syria has repeated denials that it has any nuclear weapons programme, or any such agreement with North Korea.

Needless to say we will never know the truth. The United States has an extremely poor track record with this kind of information (e.g. all the silly claims about the WMD in Iraq, to name only one example), so unfortunately anything they say can be believed. This is just one of the negative consequences of the Bush administration, which is quite possibly the worst of all time. Of course this particular information might be accurate, but who knows.
