US Air Force Codes Given to Israel

Israelis ‘blew apart Syrian nuclear cache’

Secret raid on Korean shipments

IT was just after midnight when the 69th Squadron of Israeli F15Is crossed the Syrian coast-line. On the ground, Syria’s formidable air defences went dead. An audacious raid on a Syrian target 50 miles from the Iraqi border was under way.
The most striking part of this account of the Israeli attack on Syria last week which I haven't seen mentioned anywhere else:
Only three Israeli cabinet ministers are said to have been in the know : Olmert, Barak and Tzipi Livni, the foreign minister. America was also consulted. According to Israeli sources, American air force codes were given to the Israeli air force attaché in Washington to ensure Israel’s F15Is would not mistakenly attack their US counterparts.
I wonder if that's true. And if so, I wonder why no one else has mentioned it? And, of course, this makes the US complicit in the Israeli attack.
