Peretz tries to defend himself

Amir Comrade Peretz, who was our defenseless 'defense minister' when Gilad Shalit was kidnapped, has suddenly realized that retired IDF Colonel Ronen Cohen made Peretz look pretty bad last week with his description of the IDF's non-response to Shalit's kidnapping. So Peretz is now claiming that a deal to free Shalit two weeks after he was kidnapped 'fell through' and that the IDF did look at military options. Yeah, sure.
"[Former] prime minister Olmert told me that apparently a deal was set and that Gilad will be released on Friday at four o'clock in the afternoon and it's done," Peretz said. "We expected to receive a message from Mubarak and we promised to release prisoners to Abu Mazen (PA President Mahmoud Abbas), but something blew up there."

Peretz said they continued to explore other negotiating options in the following months, even turning to high-level officials in the Hamas leadership in Syria.

"We didn't even hesitate to negotiate with officials in Syria - that went up to Khaled Mashaal. A month and a half after the kidnapping, we appointed a coordinator. We acted decisively to find a military option as if there were no negotiation, and conducted negotiations as if there were no military option."

Ultimately, Peretz blamed intelligence failures for precluding military actions to free Schalit.
Okay folks, whom do you believe? A retired military intelligence colonel or a conniving politician who's trying to save his political career, but is such a moron that he doesn't know how to take the covers off his binoculars (see above). I go with the colonel.

I think he had a very picture looking through the binoculars. He saw Gilad coming from afar and he probably couldn't believe it. Yes he did look very smart. Then again he may have been looking inside of himself and was too busy noticing the world he was living in.
