A defiant Prime Minister Ehud Olmert, tarred by a probe into last summer's Lebanon war, urged political rivals on Wednesday to "slow down" before trying to reap political capital from his misfortunes. Olmert made the remarks at a special cabinet meeting he called to start examining the findings of a government probe on the war's failures. The report, which accused Olmert of rash actions in the early days of the Second Lebanon War, has provoked a new onslaught of calls for his resignation. "To those who are eager to take advantage of this report to reap certain political advantages, I suggest 'slow down,'" he told cabinet members.
