Syrian Nuclear Weapons Plant

I wasn’t sold on the fact that the Israelis hit a Syria nuclear site. I thought maybe it was either an intelligence fuckup, which happens more than you imagine, remember the Chinese embassy in Belgrade? Or just a warning from the Israelis. But we are getting some satellite photos now and the Syrians have basically wiped the site clean. They went in with bulldozers and graders. Here are the before and after shots.

Why did they obliterate all the evidence? I am still not sold 100% but I damn sure am leaning in that direction. I wish the CIA didn’t have to rebuild its covert nuclear proliferation network in the Middle East.
