Today CIA Director Michael Hayden reported that when Israel bombed the Plutonium reactor the first week of September it was only weeks from completion. Within a year after that syria would have enough fuel for two weapons. That means if Israel had not bombed the site Syria might have had a Nuclear Weapon before the end of 2008. What makes the scenario even scarier, if Barack “lets engage the Syrians” Obama was President of the United States, with the help of his numerous anti-Israel advisers, he would have put pressure on Israel NOT to bomb the Nuke Plant. Syria and its terrorist friends would have a clear path to bombs and their ultimate target, the United States:

Democrats and liberals have fiercely criticized the Bush administration for focusing on state sponsors of terrorism such as Syria and Iran, instead of focusing exclusively on non-state terror groups such as al-Qaeda. We’ve even heard it said that focusing on state sponsors of terror is a “distraction.” But terrorists with nuclear weapons are a lot more dangerous than terrorists who lack them. Al-Qaeda’s attempts to acquire nuclear weaponry have fizzled. It is from states such as Syria and Iran and North Korea that the threat of nuclear terrorism chiefly comes. Military action against nuclear facilities can be effective–especially if those facilities are located far from population centres, as Syria’s was. And despite Syria’s command of terrorist organizations, there has been no Syrian terrorist retaliation. Something to think about in connection with the much more ominous Iranian nuclear program. The revelations underscore the lethal naivete of the advisers around Barack Obama. As Gabriel Schoenfeld has pointed out on the Commentary magazine blog, Joseph Cirincione, the man most widely identified as Obama’s top nuclear-affairs adviser, last September pooh-poohed as “far-right” “nonsense” the early rumors that the Syrian nuclear facility was indeed a nuclear facility. Cirincione wrote on the Foreign Policy blog: “This [early news of the Syrian facility] appears to be the work of a small group of officials leaking cherry-picked, unvetted ‘intelligence’ to key reporters in order to promote a pre-existing political agenda. If this sounds like the run-up to the war in Iraq, it should. This time it appears aimed at derailing the U.S.-North Korean agreement that administration hardliners think is appeasement. Some Israelis want to thwart any dialogue between the U.S. and Syria.” Cirincione seems to have been so determined to avert what he regarded as the threat of U.S. over-reaction–so eager to promote dialogue with Syria–that he blinded himself to the reality of a nuclear threat.
