Why the Hush-hush?

Yesterday, New York Times posted an article with the headline: "IAF recently photographed nuclear facilities in Syria." That article has now suddenly been removed, but it isn't hard to find out where that fallacy came from. Here's the gist of the NY Times article:

The New York Times on Wednesday quoted a Bush Administration official as saying Israel recently photographed possible nuclear installations in Syria.

The comments come amid ongoing silence in Israel regarding Damascus’ allegations that the Israel Air Force fired missiles at ground targets deep in Syria during an overflight last week.

“One Bush administration official said Israel had recently carried out reconnaissance flights over Syria, taking pictures of possible nuclear installations that Israeli officials believed might have been supplied with material from North Korea,” the paper wrote. “The administration official said Israeli officials believed that North Korea might be unloading some of its nuclear material on Syria”

“The Israelis think North Korea is selling to Iran and Syria what little they have left,” the New York Times quoted the official as saying.

Note how it goes from genuine assurance, to "possible." In other words, you can throw everything you've read out the window. Who wrote that article, you say? Why Israelis and the Jewish media of course. What a coincidence. Nothing that's being reported about the mysterious alleged September 6th IAF air strike in Syria through the mainstream media is factitious. It's all theoretical up to this point, but you can't keep the Jewish media from spinning the story. Israel, the Saudis, and (for the most part) the U.S., have all been quiet about this. How unusual that something like this happens, and both the Israelis and U.S. remain private about it. That never happens.

I think it's because the mission was a big, fat failure, and to save themselves and others the embarrassment, they decided to just let the biased media run with it for now. I don't think the mission had anything to do with Hizbullah rockets, or if it did, they missed. Otherwise the Israelis would be gloating all over the place. Testing of Syrian air defenses is another possibility, and is not entirely out of the question. That would sort of explain maybe why the jets had to drop their fuel tanks on Turkish land. Whatever is going on, you can rest assured that we're going to get dragged into it. The silence is quite possibly the biggest mystery, and I don't believe the lies lately of Israel not wanting to go to war with Syria and Iran for a second.
