A lack of intelligence wasn't the IDF's downfall in Bint Jbail, IDF Chief of General Staff Lt.-Gen. Dan Halutz said in an interview on Channel 1 Wednesday evening. Halutz said that on the intelligence level, the army was aware of what awaited forces in Bint Jbail. The chief of general staff emphasized that "we're in the process of investigating everything that happened," good and bad, and said that such investigations could take another month. "I promise that when everything is concluded, I will present [the information] before all the Israeli people," he said.
