A spokesman for former prime minister Ehud Olmert said Thursday that in light of all of the criticism of Defense Minister Ehud Barak by the former heads of Israel's security apparatus, every Israeli citizen should see "a warning light" regarding the "serious damage" caused to Israel's security by Barak during his term in office, Army Radio reported.

Olmert was responding to criticism by Barak of himself, former Shin Bet (Israel Security Agency) head Yuval Diskin and former Mossad head Meir Dagan on Wednesday made in an interview with Yisrael Hayom in which he said that all of them "circle around the world and hurt us - this serves Iran."
