If we nuked the site there would be radiological signatures.


Edited to add: Maybe not? That article is ridiculous.

12. its from the Jerusalem post and Al Jazeera article posted

its pretty wild statement

17. theres some excellent threads talking about this
yesterday Al Jeezra came out with it and now Jerusalem Post today

its looking suspicious and my point is if US did this then the American public needs to know if we did a preemptive attack on a nation without warning AGAIN and shouldn't Congress be in on this

13. and if the us didn't, then there is no reason to notify congress
So, is there some proof that the US bombed syria or do you just believe anything that you read?

16. No proof that I know of.
But this story has changed with the wind. I remember when Syria wasn't bombed at all, and Israeli jets had to drop fuel under fire. Who the hell knows? I don't think they were nuked, but how unrealistic would it be if the USAF was used in this attack?

18. Nobody knows Netanyu admitted bombing Syria and now
all of a sudden US did it

there was censorship of Haaretz at the time and other newspapers

Yes my friends even the newspapers at the time admitted censorship was requested by military
its called a news blackout

19. and so the answer is yes, you believe anything you read.
No proof that the Al Jazeera is anything but fantasy and signficant proof that it is fantasy (see numerous posts debunking idea that bombing could've involved tactical nukes as claimed by al jazeera).

Oh well, I've come to expect such silliness here these days.

20. Heres some past news reports from our great media
http://abcnews.go.com/WN/story?id=3752687&page=1

Israeli officials believed that a target their forces bombed inside Syria last month was a nuclear facility, because they had detailed photographs taken by a possible spy inside the complex, ABC News has learned.

Israeli Air Strike Mystery Solved?

The Bush administration has steadfastly refused to say anything about the Israeli raid on Syria, or to confirm what was hit. But ABC News has learned of the apparent mole and other dramatic and secret details about the events leading up to the airstrike, plus the evidence that supported it.
