Following up on yesterday's post about the ISIS report which said their experts had identified what they thought might be that Syrian site the Israelis bombed in September - the NY Times has some interesting satellite photos today that shows a massive clean-up operation has been done at said site.
There was obviously something happening there the Syrians didn't want anyone having a good look at.
But, logically, that doesn't prove it must have been a nuclear something. The arguments for saying the "nuke" stuff is just value-added agitprop are still just as valid as they were before. I'm still of a mind that this facility was a less-sexy but perhaps even more dangerous chemical weapons/missile fabrication plant. If so, the Israelis actually had more reason for an attack than if it was a nuke plant which was years from completion. But they still should have involved the international community and left out the nukey-scarey BS - because one loose-cannon state isn't counterbalanced by being yet another loose-cannon state.
