Failure of a Measured Response

The words "Measured Response" are never used......And the Israeli soldiers that this war was supposedly about are still prisoners of Hezbollah/Hizbullah and Hamas.

Perhaps this was also the conclusion of Wajid Khan's report to the PM, which is why it has never been made public.

Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert took a staggering blow to the political chin last night after an official commission of inquiry issued a scathing interim report on his government's handling of the country's war last summer in southern Lebanon."The word `failure' recurred over and over again," said Gil Hoffman, chief political correspondent for The Jerusalem Post.

Israel's failed war in Lebanon

Israel botched it from the start

ALTHOUGH it said nothing new of substance, the sharpness of the Winograd Commission’s words took Israeli politicians’ breath away. The commission—government appointed and led by a former Supreme Court judge—on Monday April 30th issued a report on the first five days of Israel’s war in south Lebanon last summer. It accuses the prime minister, Ehud Olmert, of a “severe failure in exercising judgment, responsibility and prudence” for deciding to go to war immediately after Hizbullah militants kidnapped two Israeli soldiers in a cross-border raid, and for continuing it after it became clear that an attack would not bring them back.

Israel balks at Hamas prisoner demand
Public pressure has been building on Israel's government to make a deal for Shalit — along with two soldiers captured three weeks later by Hezbollah guerrillas in a similar cross-border raid from Lebanon, setting off a destructive 34-day war last summer.
