It's common knowledge that some officers, especially on the last leg of their Zahal careers get "political" so that some facts of the ground don't do them well, and to act on them might not look that good on the curriculum vitae. The result of that "fact on the gournd" means a professional soldier who points something out that would do "things" to his superior officers future post Zahal is not welcome. So . . . either it is avoided, or, if mentioned creates friction in the unit. Sadly, in a nation many of whose top army brass is often more concerned with personal advancement rather than the good of the Army, we get those situations. And, we see the results "on the ground", all too well.
