Syria strike details to be released


www.channel4.com

Israel and the US are co-ordinating the release of details of a mysterious Israeli air force strike in Syria, according to reports.
The Haaretz newspaper says US officials might disclose details of the Sept 6 strike later this month during congressional hearings.

It would be interesting to hear the details, as it has only been barely mentioned previously.
Considering how the strike completely flattened the place, it is possible that Israel used some type nuclear weapon in the attack, possibly a mini-nuke.
What do you think?

This was a very interesting story when it broke. If I recall correctly, there were rumours of North Korean fissile material having been shipped to Syria, en route to Iran. It was supposedly this material that was targeted in the raid.

It will be fascinating to hear the official version of events.

One point to bear in mind - they don't NEED to release these details, so what are they trying to achieve by doing so?

Not a chance on the planet a nuke was used `mini` or otherwise - everyone would have known within a VERY short time.

all rumours - and any `official` release from washington will also be subject to speculation - quite frankly no one at least here believes what they say as official.

Agreed.

It's probably another lame attempt to implicate Syria in supporting terrorist activities throughout the region. The more I read about Israel and their cowardly attacks, the less I like them. They're the root of all that is evil in the Middle East.

good find. Flagging this one, in the hopes we get some more info by the end of this month.

Now this will be interesting... there must have been something important there for a number of reasons:

1) Something critical was required for the Israelis to bother risking an attack in the first place... this could have sparked off something much bigger, so the benefits of destroying this facility must have outweighed the risks of undertaking the raid.
2) Due to the secrecy surrounding the entire operation. According to the Sunday Times, the Israelis sent in a team of commandos prior to the raid to scout the site to convince the US to give their blessing - see this article. Why risk commandos, and why the emphasis on US support, if it was only a minor facility?
3) Due to the speed in which the Syrians removed the remnants of the site after the attack. Why clean it up so quickly if it wasn't very important?

In addition, Syria has recently called up reservists. Something is clearly going on in the Middle East, but none of the nations involved feel that revealing exactly what is to their advantage. Let's face it, if the site that the Israelis bombed didn't contain something the Syrians wanted to keep quiet they'd be shouting and screaming about it... and if Israel hadn't got something else planned, they might similarly be more open about what they did and why they did it.

I guarantee, what ever they release will not give much more detail than we already have, or if they do, it will be fake, plausible but fake. That raid went off without a hitch, and they are going to want to do it again since it worked so well.
