Baghdad Bob Redux

Well, not exactly. Maybe we should just call this guy Damascus Dave:

Nothing in Syria was bombed by the IAF, and nothing was damaged - this according to Syrian Ambassador to the United Nations Bashar Ja'afari.

Reports of such an attack are "ridiculous and not true," Army Radio reported Ja'afari as saying on Saturday. Ja'afari added that "Syria does not have North Korean nuclear facilities."

No, of course not. And the Israelis will be swimming in oceans of their own blood, too.

This could be true. From the first reports I was under the impression that this was a recce flight by the IAF to get intel on a particular site in Syria as well as perhaps gather ELINT on the new Russian SAM systems Syria has acquired. One report of a weapon being dropped in the Syrian desert was later explained as IAF drop tanks that were released when emptied.

Ja'afari added that "Syria does not have North Korean nuclear facilities."

Well, they sure as hell don't now.
