We have reached the point where spin is all that matters. A bad guy got whacked. He made some mistakes and the Keystone Kops got him. The problem for Israel right now is that it got caught and it had committed crimes against allies in pursuit of the bad guy. The problem for Netanyahu is trying to turn what has become a fiasco into a victory. Even more, turning a fiasco which has backfired, done more harm to Israel than Hamas, into a great victory. Aluf Benn is there to spin away. Others will, and have. Was whacking one guy who deserved to be whacked worth the price of whacking him? Bibi thinks so. The rest of the world thinks not.
