    But given the stated limitations, which bar it from questioning the key witnesses, even if its members DO pursue it in a credible manner, it'll most likely result in a complete whitewash. Although a safe prediction would be that, in order to project a semblence of credibility, it WILL find fault; but over some insignificant detail that in itself isn't particularly damning.

And because of this choice, in face of the overwhelming international criticism being directed toward Israel, one has to really question their motives and what exactly it is they're trying to hide.
