The head of the UN’s nuclear watchdog group, Mohamed ElBaradei, has criticized the United States for withholding intelligence that it says showed the construction of a nuclear reactor in Syria that Israel bombed in September.
The United States government has not condemned this bombing. We are signatories to the Charter of the United Nations. We are a permanent member of the Security Council. And it is our responsibility to ensure that the sovereignty of member nations is protected. And what occurred in September of last year was that the sovereignty of Syria was violated by Israel in a preemptive, unprovoked attack against a site that was not in any way representative of a threat to Israel or a violation of international law.
When people fail to pay attention to the truth they are apt to become strongly deluded and believe a lie instead. This has been the favorite trick of despots and dictators throughout the ages. They get people’s minds off their problems and needs and altercations by creating a much more frightening bugaboo, such as an external war or fear of their neighbors, or causing them to focus their fears.
