In a rare public spat between two of Israel's highest-ranking politicians, former prime minister Ehud Olmert said he did not trust Defense Minister Ehud Barak with Israel's most serious military matters, in a Channel 2 investigative report aired Monday.

"I would very much prefer that this large a responsibility on these subjects (such as the Iranian nuclear program) will be in the hands of somebody else, not his," Olmert said. "I want someone willing to slam the table and say 'enough, this is what we're willing to do, this is what we're not.'"
