Is only Barak to blame for the mess? No. Galant lied. Naveh doesn´t understand the meaning and importance of the rule of law and the independence of the courts. And also a guy like Harpaz is part of the military "mindset". And would you say that Yaalon is fit and balanced enough to be the boss? And what about Ashkenazi, isn´t he waging a dirty war against Barak? Is the animosity between them only Baraks fault? I don´t think so. It´s true, however, that Barak alreday from the moment he entered politics, never really understood how people and politics works. But he is still a brilliant guy, in his area of expertise. The mess in the Kirya is scary. And the planning och orders regarding the operation against Mavi Marmara was flawed. And Tzahal didn´t function as we wanted it to, during the second Lebanon war. How much of all this can be traced back to the sometimes weird and destructive personalityof Ehud Barak? I don´t know. My impression is that Ehud Barak is part of the problem, but he is not the whole problem. I believe, sadly enough, that our top military brass is corrupt. But I don´t know how to fix it.
