UN Chief Scolds Israel Over Syria Bombing

Sunday longtime Director General of the IAEA Mohamed ElBaradei criticized Israel's September raid on a Syrian building they claim was a nuclear installation. The U.S. were the only ones that were shown the so-called "evidence" of a nuclear installation, and Israel decided to commit yet another war crime by going ahead with the strike. ElBaradei says as everyone knows that the IAEA nor anyone else received any evidence at all of a Syrian nuke site.

"That to me is very distressful because we have a system: if countries have information that the country is working on a nuclear-related program, they should come to us. We have the authority to go out and investigate," he said.

"But to bomb first and then ask questions later, I think it undermines the system and it doesn't lead to any solution to any suspicion, because we are the eyes and ears of the international community."
