Segev is a bright reporter so it escapes me that he is surprised to confront the same old Olmert. Olmert is and has been a light weight all his political life. he has been a khalturist- surviving by the seat of his pants, totally unprofessional and unprinicipled. But make no mistake- he is in the mold of Sharon, Barak Netanyahoo and other Israeli politicians who have caused Israel untold damage.
