Brian, Your guest Juan Cole,

Your guest Juan Cole, it seems at your question, said that what Israel bombed in Syria was a convoy carrying missiles intended for Lebanon. What is interesting is that no other explanation was mentioned. From the Syrian Government what was bombed was a scientific research center near Damascus. Evidence indicates that a scientific research center near Damascus was bombed and the building destroyed killing 2 and injuring 5.
So, I find it very one sided reporting and leaves your listeners with possibly misinformation. Juan Cole gives us what is the US Government explanation, but fails to tell us that this kind of provocation by Israel has caused a very serious reaction in the region.
Please give us a little more balance, especially when a known rouge like Israel in involved.
Thank you
