IAEA Springs Into Action, Plans to Probe Syrian Nuke Reactor Destroyed Seven Months Ago

Do not fear, Mr. Potato Head is on the job!

Totally laughable, of course. Shouldn't have this alleged watchdog group known of the existence of the Syrian reactor?

If this doesn't expose them as frauds, nothing ever will.
The head of the U.N. nuclear watchdog pledged on Friday to investigate what he called serious U.S. accusations that Syria secretly built a nuclear reactor with North Korean help.

Syria, which denies the U.S. allegations, accused the United States of involvement in an Israeli air attack in September that Washington says destroyed the site of an atomic reactor in a remote part of the Arab state.

Mohamed ElBaradei, director of the International Atomic Energy Agency, said the allegations by U.S. intelligence against Syria would be investigated with due vigor.

"The Agency will treat this information with the seriousness it deserves and will investigate the veracity of the information," ElBaradei said in a statement.

Naturally, the schmuck criticizes the United States.
He criticized the United States for not disclosing its intelligence information sooner. Israel should have given IAEA inspectors a chance to investigate any Syrian nuclear activity before bombing the site, he added.
This reactor started going up seven years ago and this supersleuth was totally clueless. Now it's CYA time.
ElBaradei bemoaned Washington's failure to turn the information over to the IAEA on the alleged reactor, said to have been launched in 2001, much earlier to help "enable us to verify its veracity and establish the facts".

"In light of the above, (I) view the unilateral use of force by Israel as undermining the due process of verification that is at the heart of the non-proliferation regime," he added.
What a comedian.
