Uzi Arad, who served as the head of the National Security Council during the 2010 Mavi Marmara
incident, slammed Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu and his government for carrying out "exponentially sloppy work" in preparation for the flotilla to Gaza.
Arad, speaking on a panel in Tel Aviv on Friday, made the comments two days after State Comptroller Micha Lindenstrauss criticized the government's decision-making process in dealing with the flotilla in his report on incident.
Lindenstrauss charged in the report that the National Security Council Law of 2008 had not been properly implemented and, as a result, the NSC did not play the central role it should have in the decision-making process surrounding the Gaza flotilla.
