Barak was an extremely brave soldier, but a lousy strategist.He , more than any other Israeli, fueled the second Infitada by his sickening midnight withdrawal from Lebanon and accompanying BETRAYAL of Israel's Lebanese allies . He followed up on this disaster with DOING ABSOLUTELY NOTHING after Hezbollah kidnapped and executed 3 IDF soldiers . Also, his Camp David strategy was a near disaster - Arafat saved Israel. Also, his pimping for international crook Marc Rich is something out of Olmert's playbook. Turning to Olmert, yes, he is a legendary palm-greaser, with an extraordinary talent for escaping prosecution, but, as Israel has painfully learned, a clever crook's skill-set is insufficient for the PM's job.
