After Netanyahu says he would wait for a new U.S. president to reach a better military deal for Israel, American officials fire back.00:09 08.02.16 | 5 comments
is the prime minister supposed to supervise personally every single military operation? is every prime minister, or even defence minister required to know what are the best military tactics at every moment? netanyahu gave the order to stop the flotillahs. it was the responsibility of the navy and ultimately of the head of the army to ensure that the best tactics were used. the essential question is why was there such a glaring lack of intelligence regarding the mavi marmara and why were the commandos ordered to use minimum force in the initial phase of the seizure of the ship. it must also be pointed out that netanyahu did not succeed in persuading turkey diplomatically to call off the flotillah. it is quite obvious that the obama administration refused to help.
