    "These are people with a lofty title but without any real influence on military actions," - Herzog Is this a true insult Herzog is leveling at his fellow members of the Gov't he belongs to? At which case he is just one of many loud-mouths who's ability to impact the operation of the gov't is non-existent. (why didn't HE do something at the time? - is he just another powerless tool?) Or is this an attempt at minimization? An attempt to try and isolate these war criminals away from the rest of the Gov't? An offering of sacrifice in an attempt to save the rest of the corrupt Gov't? Place all the blame on this named set of impotent blustering loudmouths, so that they take the butt of the blame for the entire top-to-bottom failure of everyone involved? Hard to tell. But I'm not sure how effective the tactic of painting YET ANOTHER set of back-to-back Israeli administrations as bumbling impotent loudmouths is going to play for Israel in the long run.
