Photo evidence that Syria had a nuclear reactor

Photo suggests quick cleanup of suspected Syrian nuclear site – CNN.com

There are new commercial images that show a suspected Syrian nuclear reactor site has been wiped clean since it was bombed September 6 by Israeli aircraft. The analysts say that the cleanup will hinder a proposed investigation by international inspectors and suggests Syria is trying to conceal the evidence.

“It took down this facility so quickly it looks like they are trying
to hide something,” said David Albright, president of the Institute for
Science and International Security, which analyzed the images.
An image taken Wednesday by a DigitalGlobe commercial satellite shows
tractors or bulldozers and scrape marks on the ground where the
building stood in photos taken prior to the September Israeli attack.”

Had the building not been razed, inspectors would have been able to
tell from its construction whether it was meant to house a North
Korean-style nuclear reactor, Albright said. He said the fact that the
structure got a roof so early in its construction also suggests that it
was a reactor.
