    The probe has reached the totally embarrassing point. Netanyahu is claiming that somehow someone else was Prime Minister and he had no input, no say, no control. Barak is claiming he was totally responsible and that the government KNEW it was launching an attack into hostile circumstances - which the government has denied until now. Yes, the probe by Israel into the Flotilla Fiasco may be closed. We know now that EVERYONE INVOLVED was, and may still be, GUILTY of living on Fantasy Island. That NO ONE involved in the decision making process was guilty of the slightest degree or reality or comprehension. We now know, by the testimony of those involved in the decision making process that no one was in control, that a Minister of Defense was out of touch with reality. That the Prime Minister had no desire to be in touch with reality. That the IDF was acting on impulse, without any conception of reality. Hell, you can't fire them all. Fire the Electorate. The voters, the Citizens of Israel bear full responsibility. They elected Bozos, they have given carte blanch to self-serving fools in both government and the IDF. What about the IDF? Didn't ANYONE tell Barak that if he thought violence would happen then perhaps the IDF should have a story to cover reality instead of the fantasy they pimped to Israelis and the world? Israeli Voters are TOTALLY Guilty of the Fiasco. The voted for the fools who ordered it, and support the idiots who clicked their heels, and said Yes Sir. Israeli's Citizens are those guilty of accepting the most venial and corrupt of practices by their leaders. Netanyahu, Barak and the IDF command are simply symptoms of a very grave disease.
