IAEA Calls Cheney's Bluff on Alleged Syrian Nuclear Site

Smaller Font Larger Font RSS 2.0

"The IAEA has no information about any undeclared nuclear facility in Syria and no information about recent reports. We would obviously investigate any relevant information coming our way. The IAEA secretariat expects any country having information about nuclear-related activities in another country to provide that information to the IAEA," says the IAEA statement. The IAEA indicated that they had already contacted Syria concerning the credibility of such reports.

Cheney and his crony John Bolton have been carrying on a campaign alleging that the target of the Israeli air strike in Syria on September 6th, was an illegal nuclear site developed with the help of North Korea. Syria denies the claim, while Israel only admits that they attacked Syria, without giving any details.

On the issue of, "Who's leaking the Syrian-North Korean nukes story?", It is the New York Times that is leading the way. Joseph Palermo, a California State University professor, writes in The Huffington Post today, that New York Times reporters David Sanger and Mark Mazzetti, have 23 citations of sources in their Oct. 14 story. Twenty-two are unnamed officials of the U.S. government, and the other is White House spokeswoman Dana Perino.

Palermo, who has been writing about Cheney's disinformation tactics for years, says that the leaks to the Times are designed to make the case for an Israeli preemptive strike on Syria, which would also help Cheney's plans for a U.S. preemptive strike against Iran. He calls Sanger and Mazzetti the new "Judy Miller-Michael Gordon" team, doing the same Administration dirty work as those two did earlier against Iraq and Iran respectively.
