The United States must locate the missing uranium and weapons-related technology left over from Syria's nuclear program before it finds its way into Iranian hands, LIGNET managing editor Fred Fleitz says in an interview.

Details of Syria’s nuclear program came to light in reports following Israel ’s strike on the al-Kibar nuclear reactor in the Syrian desert on Sept. 6, 2007. The reactor, which was about to go online, was destroyed in the strike, but the fuel rods were never found, and no one knows how much uranium, if any, may still be in Syria.

With the political situation in Syria deteriorating, the danger is becoming greater that these fuel rods, or the uranium itself, could be handed off to Iran or make its way into the hands of terrorists.
