Yair Golan's fault is - I assume - one of ommission. I would doubt that he officially sanctioned this illegal practice, so his culpability results from a failure to ensure that this practice is stamped out. So a censure seems appropriate in HIS case, and I congratulate Ashkenazi for insisting that the concept of a chain of command be taken seriously inside the IDF. But what about the grunts who actually forced that Palestinian at gunpoint to lead them from house to house? THAT is a crime. A very serious war crime. I'd be more convinced about Ashkenazi's desire to return professionalism to the IDF if some of those grunts ended up behind bars, because otherwise this will simply keep happening.
