The timing of the release of intelligence regarding the link between North Korea and Syria over an alleged nuclear reactor facility that the Israeli’s bombed inside Syria is being questioned by the international community.
Of course, rightly so because of where the intelligence information is coming from. The Bush Administration. Not the most trustworthy group of people on the world stage today, I think we can all agree.
The US has made explicit allegations that the target hit by Israeli warplanes in Syria last September was a nuclear reactor under construction.
It was being built with help from North Korea, the Bush administration said.
But the White House statement – after a series of intelligence briefings on Capitol Hill – raises many questions.
As does the decision to go public just as international talks to try to roll back North Korea’s nuclear weapons programme have hit a critical stage.
