Conspiracy Theory on Steroids or a Nice Cover for Syria?

Dr. Sanity has a link up to this story at the Jerusalem Post:

yeah, it’s an F-14 jetThe 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.

She also has links to two credible American bloggers who think this is merely Arab Conspiracy Theory on steroids. Just another example of finding Donald Rumsfeld a shark in an Iraqi canal - a shark planted by America in order to harm the children that swim there.

A commenter at Confederate Yankee had this surmise:

I can see, “from a Syrian perspective,” how this claim might make some “logical sense;” how else would you explain it away, to the international investigative team, that the traces of radioactivity in the debris don’t support your original assertion that the facility was a “baby formula” factory?

Sounds like a good cover to me...

...or maybe Debka wrote this plot?

Her are the Before and After photos from the NYT.

Here is Global Securities article which has much useful information, including a clickalbe map and the info to find the site (2 or 3 years ago) in Earth Google. (I did). Note it is only a few miles south of the Turkish border.

The big boxy building that was destroyed would be a very easy target for a smart bomb.

If it had been a air burst high enough to leave only minor radioactivity the there would be a much larger blast area.

A very small tactical nuke dropped into the building and not leaving noticeable blast area outside of the building would create a large fallout cloud, which would have Turkey and every country in the area screaming.



Oh, excuse me, this is propaganda, it not supposed to make sense.
