Halutz was just welcomed by livni and kadima as he signed up to join kadima last week. It was Halutz as air force cheif of staff in 2003 who recommended to the sharon govt to privatize firefighting planes and now the planes israel uses in fighting fires belong to a company and they aren't on standby. That is why there is a two hour wait to fight fires. It is all because of Dan Halutz who livni welcomed last week to join kadima. Dan Halutz could be the next minister of defense in a livni govt. Dan Halutz who livni welcomed even when on the first day of the war he was dealing with his portfolio down at the bank.
