Barak blasts Netanyahu over Turkish rift

Maybe it's time at long last to replace Ehud Barak with Boogie Yaalon as Defense Minister. While Prime Minister Netanyahu may have need Barak to cover his left flank when he first came into office, I'm not convinced he needs him any more. That's especially true when Barak does things like this.
Defense Minister Ehud Barak joined the growing criticism against Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's handling of the diplomatic crisis with Turkey, accusing the prime minister of reaching an unnecessary predicament.

In meetings behind closed doors Barak criticized Netanyahu's conduct in the flotilla affair, claiming that he could have reached an understanding with Ankara and prevent the escalation of tensions between the two countries, but instead succumbed to the pressure of Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman.

"Netanyahu was on his way to reach a compromise, but was thwarted by Lieberman," Barak told close associated.

The foreign minister, along with Vice Prime Minister Moshe Ya'alon, headed the camp that staunchly refused to issue an apology to Turkey over the killing of nine Turkish civilians during the 2010 IDF raid, while the defense minister and Minister Dan Meridor made unsuccessful attempts to persuade the Forum of top eight government ministers to opt for a more conciliatory plan of action.
What you see here, what you say here, let it stay here - eh Ehud? We all know you wanted to capitulate to the lowlife Turks - you didn't have to go whine to the media about it.
