Flying pigs moment: Lebanese admit no uranium used by Israel

There was a flying pigs moment on Monday, and it was kept so quiet that you and I did not even notice.

The Lebanese Atomic Energy Commission admitted on Monday that it has conducted tests that proved that Israel did not use explosives laced with uranium in last summer's war. Somehow, I doubt that we will see a retraction from al-Independent or Robert Fisk, but this may be the next best thing.
The ruling, based on laboratory tests, was presented during a scientific symposium on nuclear energy held in Lebanon on Monday. The symposium was aimed at informing the Lebanese public of lab tests carried out on more than 100 sites bombed during the war.

The weapons used by Israel, in particular cluster bombs which caused the injury and death of Lebanese civilians, have come under heavy criticism since the war.

The NEW TV Lebanese satellite station reported that the symposium was attended by representatives of several Arab and international delegations and organizations, as well as representatives of the Lebanese security organizations.

In November, a United Nations official said that a team carrying out an environmental assessment of Lebanon after the war confirmed that the Israeli military used artillery containing white phosphorous but found no evidence of depleted uranium.

Maybe they used secret Zionist disappearing uranium. Or used secret Zionist nanotechnology to clean it up. Get Jamil Hussein on the phone. He can clear up anything.
