"Israel could have informed the IAEA before the raid or even after the raid, when the evidence was still there." - Tosefta If the site which was the target is the site we have been looking at (The Albright site), then it is not hard to see why. There was a box, a big box, about 50 meters on a side and near cubical. That is an odd building, but there were none, absolutely NONE of the other facilities associated with a plutonium production plant. Moreover, the building had been there for at least four years and no further construction had occurred (exception, the small "pumping" plant IF it was in fact associated). I think that the IAEA would have eagerly inspected that curious building - and I think it should have - and I wonder why men and aircraft were put at risk when the IAEA could have been informed, and Syria either revealed, embarrassed or acquitted at no risk to Israel.
