Why is it that every article printed about the flotilla raid includes the adjective "botched"? Use of this pejorative adjective suggests that Israel did something wrong in its handling of the raid. I believe that this characterization and conclusion is dead wrong. It goes without saying that in hindsight things could have been done differently, but there is no way that anyone can say that the outcome would have been different even if things were done differently. While it is certainly fair to criticize the way things were done, it is overly judgmental and irresponsible to assert that the raid was "botched". Surely an erudite publication such as Haaretz can come up with a less prejudicial adjective (such as "controversial") to more accurately describe the events.
