Where was Bond?

I've been following the story, mainly in the Times, about the Israeli attack on what is said to be a Syrian nuclear facility. It has been claimed that Syria had obtained nuclear material from North Korea.

Today the Sunday Times takes the story a step further by reporting that Israeli commandos had snatched nuclear material from the facility. After tests showed that it was nuclear and was of North Korean origin, the US approved the Israeli air raid.

There is no evidence for any of this, just briefings from US/Israeli intelligence. It sounds a bit unlikely and dangerous to me - snatching nuclear material. In fact it sounds more like the opening of a James Bond film.
