    Why was Leah Rabin repeatedly told by the SHABAK right after the shooting "Yitzhak is all right, it was an excercise, the shots were blanks"? (taken from her autobiography". Why was Yigal Amir, whose identity card was checked by the police prior to the shooting, allowed into the sterile area? Why did SHABAK provocateur Avishai Raviv call several reporters a couple of minutes after the shooting and say "we missed this time, we will get him the next time?". Why was SHABAK chief Carmi Gillon, who failed to protect Rabin and was the responsible for the biggest failure in the SHABAK's history, given two big jobs by Peres afterwards (1) to be head of the Shimon Peres Peace Center and (2) Ambassador to Denmark?
