Senior Israel Defense Forces officers expressed dissatisfaction yesterday with the announcement by Chief of Staff Dan Halutz that he had recently instructed the Field Security Directorate at the General Staff to keep track of their telephone conversations.
According to a report in Haaretz yesterday, Halutz instructed the Field Security Directorate to provide him with the telephone logs of the generals, their department heads and their secretaries, in order to crosscheck whether they have had contacts with journalists.

According to the disgruntled officers , the chief of staff's action "stinks of McCarthyism" . . .

The Israeli chief of staff is a mess. He needs to resign or be fired.
He is responsible for loosing this war...he sold off his stocks right before the invasion...now he is after officers who are explaining to the press what a jerk he is.

We could use a similar program. Of course, someone would then have to have the testicular fortitude to prosecute, and not cower from the MSM/ACLU.

"Chief of Staff Dan Halutz"
As was mentioned many, many times on TV this fellow was a
Air Force General who convinced the PM that the war could be won by air power like Clinton did in Bosnia. One cannot win a war on terrorist with air power. One must go in on the ground so that the terrorist can be eliminated and their locations pinpointed. Dropping bombs on targets without killing the terrorist or their chain of command will not get a terrorist to stop as they care nothing about their fellow humans that they are using as shields. I would put the blame firmly on Haultz for the outcome of the war.

Israel kicks jews off land they've developed and lived on for their whole lives. Give it to palestinians who are worthless.
Now they are practicing censorship, intimidation and for what? To cover up inadaquacies at the top of the military?
Nothing to see her, move along. Shut up and move along NOW.
