Because of its severe criticism of the military establishment the report was shelved and never discussed again either in military or political circles. The report was therefore published in a book form in Hebrew in 1987, by Shocken ans still did not arouse public uproar as it should have. The results of the 2006 fiasco in Lebanon confirm each and every accusation of Col(ret.) Wald. Winograd committee cannot come up with anything beyond what Wald already knew 20 years ago. If anyone thinks the IDF repaired itself in the brief period since June 2006 they ought to be committed. If Israel even thinks it is worth its while to engage in another war this summer it ought to be repared for another humiliating debacle.
