U.S. Bombed Syria, Not Israel, says Jerusalem Post

Is this propaganda from an Israeli paper or true? If true then we should DEMAND an explanation to know why President (sic) Bush did not get on TV and tell the American people that "today, U.S. pilots bombed a Syrian facility which we believed was being constructed for nuclear enrichment projects". At least Reagan did this when we bombed Libya and Kadafi. But this was done IN STEALTH....WE HAD TO READ ABOUT IT IN A FOREIGN NEWSPAPER, which shows the media's absolute complicity in this censorship!

He did not even inform Congress, if this is true! An act of war on another country, Syria, is precisely what the secretive neocons (including Cheney) have been wanting. There is no proof to their allegation, which both Syria and North Korea disavowed (claim was N Korea had sent nuke equipment to Syria for constructing facility). THIS IS OUTRAGEOUS, which is why the story broke on Friday (news dump day)!

Another hypothesis, since I wondered why Israel (Jerusalem Post) would publish this, knowing American media would pick it up (then feed it to Matt Drudge), which they would KNOW the U.S. wanted to be kept a secret if true: Could this be retaliation against the U.S. government for charging and trying 2 AIPAC (Israeli lobby) agents for espionage? (See article just below this one). The dragging in Condi and the two neocons says "we will take you down with us". The timing of these two incidents (knowing how Israel coerces and defends its agents) is highly suspicious.

Israel and the JPost HAD TO KNOW THIS WOULD CAUSE TROUBLE FOR AMERICA. This is the kind of thing consistent with how Israel coerces policy, action, and control with U.S. government--i.e. hardball and virtual blackmailing threats.

Watch and see how the Bush administration responds to this, and a public statement should absolutely be forthcoming, and/or a Congressional investigation about a secret plan by the Bush administration to attack Syria, without Congressional notification, or even U.S. media or the people being informed.

'USAF struck Syrian nuclear site'

The September 6 raid over Syria was carried out by the US Air Force, the Al-Jazeera Web site reported Friday. The Web site quoted Israeli and Arab sources as saying that two US jets armed with tactical nuclear weapons carried out an attack on a suspected nuclear site under construction.

The sources were quoted as saying that Israeli F-15 and F-16 jets provided cover for the US planes.
The sources added that each US plane carried one tactical nuclear weapon and that the site was hit by one bomb and was totally destroyed.
At the beginning of October, Israel's military censor began to allow the local media to report on the raid without attributing their report to foreign sources. Nevertheless, details of the strike have remained clouded in mystery.
The New York Times reported on October 13 that Israeli planes struck at what US and Israeli intelligence believed was a partly constructed nuclear reactor in Syria on September 6,
