Syria -- caught in the act

If I remember, in the wake of the most recent Tel Aviv bombing, Syria was shocked, shocked, that Israel would dare accuse it of being behind that event. Of course, Syria's probably even more shocked now to learn that its henchman was caught on tape ordering that same bombing:

A story just out in the Israel National (and listed in today’s news column) reports that Ramadan Abdullah Shallah, the leader of the Palestinian Islamic Jihad (PIJ), since 1995, who is based in Damascus, Syria, was caught on tape ordering the recent PIJ terrorist bombing attack against the Stage Club in Tel Aviv. The news report further states that a transcript of the tape has been turned over to Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice.
It really is lovely, after Syria has spent 20 years practicing plausible deniability (which, in international circles, requires a very low level of plausibility), that it is now firmly caught in the cross-hairs, with George Bush (bless him) leading a sustained attack against that country's utterly corrupt and hate-filled leaders.
