Defense Minister Ehud Barak on Sunday morning commented on former Mossad chief Meir Dagan's statements over the weekend, saying that Dagan is a man with many rights who has contributed greatly to the state, but that he should not have shared his thoughts with the public.

Dagan said on Saturday that "an aerial attack against Iran’s nuclear reactors would be foolish,” adding that such an attack would start a regional war whose end Israel cannot foresee.

"I'm not sure his statements are correct and if we're dealing with intelligence issues, it is not right to share those statements with the public," Barak said.
