Iran and Syria -- Doubts about their statements

We judge "diplomatic sources" in re Syrian and Iranian cooperation to be an overstatement and unreliable.

BBC reported earlier this year of discussions.

We remain skeptical of diplomatic claims that Syrian and Iran are plan to protect eachother's stockpiles.

Bluntly, Iran does not appear to have a credible nuclear program in place -- so what would Syria possibly protect?

No answer from the State Department -- they haven't figured out which contractor to place that article.
