David A. Fulghum and Robert Wall report in Aviation Week that U.S. Electronic Surveillance Monitored Israeli Attack On Syria. It was a 21st Century operation:

I doubted this [technology] five years ago. But we did it. Now everything has changed.
"You need this kind of capability," he says."You're not being responsible if you're not dealing with it. And, if you can build this kind of capability, the sky's the limit."
