Livni to testify in front of Turkel Commission?

Former Foreign Minister and current opposition leader Tzipi Livni has asked to testify in front of the Turkel Commission, which is investigating the Mavi Marmara incident.
Opposition Leader Tzipi Livni wrote a letter to retired justice Jacob Tuerkel on Monday, in which she asked to testify, of her own volition, before the judge's panel investigating Israel's interception of a Turkish flotilla trying to break the naval blockade of Gaza on May 31st. The former foreign minister and acting prime minister said she wanted to present the committee what she called all of the diplomatic and defense perspectives that led to the closure of Gaza which were not properly addressed by Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu in his testimony on Monday.

Livni associates said, "In contrast to Netanyahu, who proved today that he removes all responsibility from himself and throws it at others af the moment of truth, Livni takes responsibility and wishes to appear before the committee."
And I'm sure that Livni's intentions are pure as the driven snow....

Netanyahu to testify before flotilla (Turkel) commission -
Stopping the flotilla heading for Gaza in international waters 100 kilometers from Israel was not illegal; in time of armed conflict, which is the case between Israel and Hamas, ships intending to breach the blockade may be searched even on the high seas, according to international law.

What a stupid, stupid and self-serving woman to be using this forum for her own political purposes. Truly despicable.

I'm sure Livni will explain why she and Ehud Olmert agreed to allow Hamas to run in the PA elections in 2006.

I'm not holding my breath waiting for her to disclose the entire background to where Israel has gotten today.
