    The problem is not the high salaries. The problem is the lack of transpacrency. If it is vital to have a top paid person , that is not the problem. The problem is the Army is doing underhanded and under the table deals. Who knows if they do give some generals millions in illegal arms trade deals . If there is no transpanrency and the Army can do whatever he wants and is not under any public supervision , who knows what can be next. that is why Barak can use the Army to advance his personal agenda. He feels that he is above the law and beyond public scrutiny. I understand that he used the Army many times on Shabbat to evacuate Homesh. I understand that the Army is not to be utilized Shabbat only for life threatning or vital security tasks. Why is so vital to evacuate settlers on Shabbat??? However , if he he is beyond public scrutiny , he is liable anything he wants if he feels he can get away with it.
