Outgoing IDF Chief of General Staff Lt.-Gen. Dan Halutz visited the Shizafon base in the South on Tuesday as part of his farewell tour before officially leaving his post. Halutz, hinting at his upcoming transition to civilian life, told the troops that "I rely on you, on all of you. I have to rely on you, because soon I will need your protection." Earlier in the week, Halutz testified before the Winograd Committee investigating the failures of the war in Lebanon, where he defended his decision not to send in a major ground incursion until the last few weeks of the war.
