The few people in US intelligence circles who were actually allowed to review the evidence provided by the Israelis regarding the alleged Syrian nuclear facility have called it “bullshit.” Perhaps the mainstream media should note the implausibility of the tale being spun given the inability of Syria to support any nuclear program. They should challenge the White House to make its case in open hearings in which critics are allowed to be present and speak, including a representative of the Syrian government. Fat chance, someone said. There is speculation that the entire performance is designed to denigrate Syria to keep the Israelis happy and also to force a rethinking of the ongoing negotiations with North Korea, which will now be labeled a proliferator. The neocons, particularly in the person of John Bolton, have regarded any agreement with Pyongyang as a sell-out and prefer a more robust response to Kim Jong-Il’s ambitions.
