    It is not nice to talk ill of the dead, but in Lea Rabin case I am only stating the truth. Lea was a self centered nasty woman. I had a few chances to meet the Rabins in the late 1968 when Rabin arrived in Washington to serve as the Israeli Ambassador. After that I had a few other chances to meet them, one thing was always consistent was Lea's sour personality. With time when Rabin became Prime Minister Rabin took to the bottle and would make a spectacle of himself on US national TV after one of this spectacles I called some people in Israel to ask if he is sick or on drugs, I was told that he drinks heavily. One of the worse spectacles was on a Sunday, if my memory serves me right it was on a program called "Face the nation." The interviewer would ask a question and Rabin will respond with a bunch of unrelated nonsense. Unfortunately it happened on more then one occasion so please take what lea said with a grain of salt.
