Not Just Bolton

A Japanese newspaper reports that Ehud Olmert confirmed John Bolton's account of Israel's September raid in Syria:
"The Japanese daily newspaper Asahi Shimbun cited sources at the Japanese foreign ministry for its report of a meeting between Ehud Olmert, the prime minister of Israel, and Yasuo Fukuda, his Japanese opposite number.

"Olmert is reported to have admitted that Israel carried out the bombing last September and that the target was a nuclear-related facility built using technical assistance from Pyongyang...

"According to the paper's sources, Olmert told Fukuda that the site was a nuclear-related facility under construction with advice and assistance from North Korean technicians. The sources added that Olmert said Israel remained concerned about nuclear proliferation by North Korea and was seeking greater information sharing with Tokyo on the issue."
