IAEA: Syria lying about uranium

The IAEA has rejected Syria's explanation for the presence of uranium traces near the site of its destroyed al-Kibar nuclear plant and near a smaller facility in Damascus. The IAEA says Syria is lying.
IAEA inspectors have found and analysed traces of man-made uranium, both at that site - known as al-Kibar or Dair Alzour - and at a small research reactor in Damascus.

"The results do not support Syria's earlier explanation for the origin and presence of the particles," IAEA Director General Mohamed ElBaradei said in his report.

Following the IAEA's tests, Syrian officials have now dropped their explanation that the traces of uranium found in Damascus was contamination brought in with other equipment.

According to a senior official close to the Vienna-based agency, Syria now says that the material could be connected to experiments that were so far not known to the Vienna-based inspectors. The official said that this new version of events still had to be verified, but could be plausible.

The nature of the reported experiments was not made clear.


The IAEA has made it clear that it does not believe that the uranium particles found at al-Kibar came from Israeli munitions, as Damascus alleges.
Liar, liar, pants on fire! Don't bet on that 'experiements' story proving to be true either. Heh.

Iran is probably helping the Syrians get their own bomb though they are decades away from achieving one.
