'Dagan leaving because Mossad doesn't like losers'

June 27, 2010 10:27

Dubai police chief Lt.-Gen. Dahi Khalfan Tamim was eager to comment Sunday on the recent shakeup in the Mossad's leadership.

Meir Dagan was pressed to leave his job as Mossad chief because "the Mossad certainly does not accept losers," said Tamim in an interview with the Emirati newspaper Gulf News cited by Army Radio.

Tamim was referring to the suspected Mossad hit of senior Hamas operative Mahmoud al-Mabhouh and the subsequent international fallout generated by the use of stolen identities and forged passports by the alleged members of the assassination team.
