Was Israel’s Intelligence on Syria’s nuclear program conclusive enough to justify its attack? The New York Times reported yesterday on a debate within the Bush administration about just that.
I believe the intelligence was conclusive. There is no way Israel would have risked a global war based on hearsay. They knew exactly what threat they faced and took action against it.
Just like Neville Chamberlain, there are those in the US Government and other world governments that would deny a threat exists. These same people would stand in our ashes still arguing that another diplomatic initiative could avert a larger war.
