Worrying praise for a resounding failure
What ought to be most worrisome about the UAV affair is the depiction of this failure as a success - the IDF and the air force are being praised for a superb performance, though no one is investigating or asking questions.
When people start praising failures, it's time to worry. And that's exactly what happened a week and a half ago: Defense Minister Ehud Barak praised the chief of staff and the air force commander for the "sharp, effective performance in which a drone was intercepted and shot down in the area south of Hebron." Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu also praised the drone's interception.
