(Newser) – Syria “very likely” had a secret nuclear weapons program, according to an International Atomic Energy Agency report released yesterday, which concludes that the Dair Alzour site Israel bombed in 2007 was almost certainly an under-construction nuclear reactor.

But “you can’t ignore the timing. … This is throwing down the gauntlet against Syria."
