    From statements made to the press by unknown persons and physical evidence, we can draw a few conclusions. 1 at least 4 F-15I aircraft were involved. 2. That IDF commandos might have occupied the area after the strike, or been present before. To that we might add that the persons responsible for ordering the attack have prevented the people who carried it out from telling us what happened. The previously proffered explanation that Israel did not wish to embarrass Syria went out the window as null, void, and twaddle, with the recent limited declassification. If Israel knew what it was after, why will it not say what it was? Or, does Israel not wish to say what it was after because it knows it was not there? Jane, I don't know if you are old enough to remember how Nikita waited until Dwight Eisenhower had fully committed himself to a lie before letting the world know the truth. That the U-2 was not on a weather flight over Pakistan, it was on a spy flight over Russia. I am.
