The mystery over the Israeli bombing of Syria took a new twist today when US intelligence agencies showed a video claiming that the target had been a nuclear plant being built with North Korean help.

After seven months of silence and evasion from the Bush administration, the CIA director, Michael Hayden, briefed members of the Senate and House armed services, intelligence and foreign affairs committees, saying his weapons specialists found the evidence compelling.

US officials said today the Bush administration was putting the information out in order to clear the decks before doing a deal with North Korea to dismantle its nuclear programme.

A US official who had seen the video said: “We cannot move forward (on a deal with North Korea) unless you acknowledge we are doing this with our eyes wide open. And we are going ahead with our eyes wide open.”

  7. The Syrian ambassador said exactly what I was thinking when this was bombed last September. This is alleged to be an illegal nuclear facility for making weapons grade material, and yet there’s NO SECURITY around it whatsoever in ANY of the pictures. It is also extremely strange that the IAEA weren’t informed. There’s something very wrong here.
