It appeared on Monday that a majority in the Knesset's Foreign Affairs and Defense Committee supported setting up a state (judicial) commission to investigate the war in Lebanon. With the exception of members from Kadima - such as MK Otniel Schneller - the remaining committee members voiced their approval of setting up a state commission to investigate the failures of the war. As of this report, 11 members were in favor of the commission, and only three were against it. Only the government has the power to appoint a state commission; however, the Foreign Affairs and Defense Committee's approbation would put another layer of pressure on the government to form such a commission.
