Swiss daily says retired Revolutionary Guards general Ali Reza Asghari told US Intelligence Tehran was financing secret nuclear project of Syria and North Korea; 'Israelis who were immediately informed also were completely unaware,' according to report.
A top-ranked Iranian defector told the United States that Iran was financing North Korean moves to make Syria into a nuclear weapons power, leading to the Israeli air strike that destroyed a secret reactor, a report said Thursday.
The article in the daily Neue Zuercher Zeitung goes into detail about an Iranian connection and fills in gaps about Israel's Sept. 6, 2007, raid that knocked out Syria's nearly completed Al Kabir reactor in the country's eastern desert.

Hopefully another Iranian defector will assist Israel in taking out Iran’s nuclear facilities. Because we can be 100% certain the weenie in the WH won’t do what needs to be done.
I long consider that the best way for regime change in Iran would be winning over Iranian Army Generals.
....b...b...b....but everyone knows that Iran and Syria have no interest in nuclear weapons!!!!
That’s what they tell the UN, the IAEA, the media, and gullible Democraps..... the CIA and their farcical NIE said Iran abandoned nuclear weapons work........ and the liberals lap it up like warm milk for puppies.
“I long consider that the best way for regime change in Iran would be winning over Iranian Army Generals.”
Maybe we can offer them California, NY or Taxachussets in return for their help.
"The article in the daily Neue Zuercher Zeitung goes into detail about an Iranian connection and fills in gaps about Israel's Sept. 6, 2007, raid that knocked out Syria's nearly completed Al Kabir reactor in the country's eastern desert."
After reading both of them I find that they are the same story and are both sourcing AP. Sorry!
If you'd like to be on or off, please FR mail me.
Years later we find the truth.
This explains the calling in of those two congressmen.. there was extreme uncertainty.
I personally thought Israel had been snooping it out since the building permit was issued..... surprised I was wrong.
Meanwhile, we have a teleprompter addict as president.
The Weenie in the White House would hand this defector back to Iran
