Prime Minister Ehud Olmert has complete faith in IDF Chief of General Staff Lt.-Gen. Gabi Ashkenazi, and that the two trusted each other fully, Army Radio quoted Prime Minister's Office officials as saying on Tuesday. The statements followed criticism from Olmert's associates earlier Tuesday morning regarding Ashkenazi's letter to President Shimon Peres, in which the chief of staff called the release of Palestinian prisoners "immoral" as long as IDF Cpl. Gilad Schalit was still in captivity.
