Livni lied (so what else is new?)

Tzippi Livni quoted by the Hebrew Walla web site (translation by Aaron Lerner):
Opposition leader Tzipi Livni (Kadima) referred to this evening (Sunday) to the deal to free Gilad Shalit. At the Tel Aviv Regional Conference of the Bar Association, Tel Aviv, Livni said that she was opposed to all previous prisoner deals.

She said, "If I had known Regev and Goldwasser would be returned in caskets I would not have supported the deal ".
From then-Prime Minister Ehud K. Olmert's cabinet communique July 20, 2008 (Livni was Foreign Minister at the time):
To our regret, the reports of the boys' deaths were certain months and weeks beforehand. After unparalleled efforts, Israel's intelligence services succeeded in placing before me and the entire Government a base of hard and certain data as we came to decide on the implementation of the deal with Hezbollah. The Government knew exactly what to expect and what price we would have to pay for the soldiers' bodies. We made the decision out of clear awareness and in the end, what tipped the scales in favor of carrying out the deal was the abiding moral consideration stemming from the State of
Israel's obligation to every soldier that is sent to defend it, and to his family that expects the State to do its utmost to bring him back home.
Anyone want to argue that she wasn't lying? Or maybe it was just a 'selective memory.'
