    David, that testimony amounted to exactly this: "Mr President, I would like to take this opportunity to inform the council that it is my opinion that you can believe whatever the IDF spokesmodel chooses to say." Because, when it is all said and done, that's all that Kemp said. He mentions the letter-drops/phone calls to "Flee! Flee!", but didn't mention that the IDF had already trapped the civvies inside Gaza City i.e. the IDF ensured they couldn't flee. He mentions "huge amounts" of aid, without telling us how much aid he considers "huge" (or that he even *knows* how much aid was delivered). He talks about "aborted missions", without detailing a single one (or that he even *knows* the details of any of them). In short: he assured us that he is an "expert", but without making the slightest attempt to demonstrate that he is on top of his brief.
