Departing IDF Chief of General Staff Lt.-Gen. Dan Halutz said at Wednesday morning's swearing-in ceremony for the new chief of staff, Lt.-Gen. Gabi Ashkenazi, that it was most important for the social and military fronts to work together. "The green, the blue and the white are all [part of] this country," he said. Regarding his time as IDF chief, Halutz said that his biggest regret was that the kidnapped soldiers - Cpl. Gilad Shalit, Ehud Goldwasser and Eldad Regev - had not been brought home, and said that this should be the priority of the IDF. He also emphasized that he had no hard feelings against anyone in the defense establishment, adding, "I didn't expect more than I received.... I stood straight and proud of my actions and my orders."
