IDF investigative team appointed

The IDF has appointed an internal investigative team that will report to Chief of Staff Gabi Ashkenazi on the flotilla of fools no later than July 4, 2010.
The Chief of the General Staff, Lt. Gen. Gabi Ashkenazi has appointed Maj. Gen. (Res.) Giora Eiland to head a team of experts in order to examine the flotilla operation and establish lessons from the event.

Maj. Gen. Eiland (Res.) and his team are to determine the outcomes and lessons learnt from the operation. The team will analyze the various investigations already being carried out within the IDF regarding the operation, looking into the findings found in common.


The team is also made up of Brig. Gen. (Res.) Aviv Kohavi, the former head of the Operations Division, Brig. Gen. (Res.) Yuval Halamish, former head of the IDF Intelligence and a senior member of the Israeli National Security Council, and Col. (Res.) Ben Tzion Daabul, the former head of the Israel Navy Operational Branch and a senior figure at the defense establishment’s controller’s bureau.

A team of experts differs from an investigative team in that it is made up of a group of professionals with expertise on the matter, and were not a part of the operational chain of command during this specific incident. The IDF carries out examinations and investigations of various operations and exercises of this kind routinely and following Operation Cast Lead.
No, this won't satisfy the bloodhounds, but it will tell the IDF what it needs to know.

Israel must not agree to an international investigation. The IDF should find out why the troops were not properly armed and why they did not manage to kill ALL the terrorists. Israel is at war - and if Israel is going to be condemned by the world for defending itself, get the job done right the next time!
