Nuclear material in Syria

Last week Recliner Commentaries reported that dozens of people had recently been killed in Syria when Iranian engineers were attempting to place WMD chemical weapons on missiles.

Now, according to a report in today's TimesOnline:
Israeli commandos seized nuclear material of North Korean origin during a daring
raid on a secret military site in Syria before Israel bombed it this month,
according to informed sources in Washington and Jerusalem. The attack was
launched with American approval on September 6 after Washington was shown
evidence the material was nuclear related, the well-placed sources say. They
confirmed that samples taken from Syria for testing had been identified as North
Korean. This raised fears that Syria might have joined North Korea and Iran in
seeking to acquire nuclear weapons.

Jihad Watch calls it a "1938 alert." I agree.
