Israeli PM Admits IDF Hit Syrian Nuke Site Built with NK Help: Report

If you’re willing to believe stories told by “government sources,” the Asahi Shimbun reports that Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert told Prime Minister Yasuo Fukuda in February that the thing that went boom in Syria last September was indeed a nuclear facility being built with technical assistance from North Korea:

An Israeli airstrike against Syria last September targeted a nuclear-related facility that was under construction with technical assistance from North Korea, according to Israel’s prime minister.

Japanese government sources said over the weekend that the Israeli leader, Ehud Olmert, briefed Prime Minister Yasuo Fukuda about the attack during summit talks in Tokyo on Feb. 27.

It is apparently the first time that the intended target had been disclosed to the head of a foreign government.

I find that last line difficult to believe, but OK.

    Obviously an April Fool’s Joke! How could the Norks POSSIBLY dream of doing something like that? No way!

    Surely you don’t believe a reporter, a Professional Journalist, would ever stretch, spin, fold, staple, or mutilate the truth?

    Of course Israel is going to say North Korea is involved, whether it is or not. It associates their own foreign policy within the ever so convenient ‘war on terrorism’.
