Miki Goldwasser, mother of Israeli soldier Ehud (Udi) Goldwasser, whose abduction by Hizbullah along with Eldad Regev sparked the Second Lebanon War, sent a scathing letter Sunday to the state's president, prime minister, defense minister and Knesset chair. In it, she attacked what she perceived as a lack of government effort to bring about the release of her son.
