The Harpaz Letter Will Not Go Away

Boaz Harpaz: 'I regularly shared information with Ashkenazi, his wife and Weiner. They directly or through the IDF spokesman made sure to pass it on to the press.'

At the end of October 2010, Haaretz published a front-page report about a police investigation into the Harpaz affair, revealing that close associates of army chief Gabi Ashkenazi had searched for damaging material on Defense Minister Ehud Barak and Southern Command head Yoav Galant.
