Trying to drag Livni down with him

Israeli Prime Minister Ehud K. Olmert must be feeling that the walls are closing in on him. In a 'series of interviews' this morning, Olmert lashed out at Foreign Minister Tzippy Feigele Livni, who has done a good job at dissociating herself from her role in last summer's debacle and who has lined herself up to be Olmert's successor - at least as the leader of the Kadima Achora party.
Israel made errors during the Second War in Lebanon, and Foreign Minister Tzipi Livni bore some responsibility for them, Prime Minister Ehud Olmert said during a series of radio interviews Sunday morning.


In an interview with Army Radio, Olmert said that Livni had been fully involved in the debates that took place before and during the war, and that the foreign minister had also voted in favor of the cease-fire.
The biggest error Livni made was agreeing to Security Council Resolution 1701, but for Olmert to admit that, he would also have to admit that last summer's war accomplished nothing.
