If Prime Minister Ehud Olmert doesn't resign then former defense minister Amir Peretz and former chief of General Staff Lt.-Gen. Dan Halutz should be reinstated to their former positions, opposition leader Binyamin Netanyahu said Monday. During a Knesset debate on the Winograd committee's findings, Netanyahu said that the report showed that it was political echelon failed in its management of the war. "The Second Lebanon War was a failure and the ultimate responsibility for this failure lies with Prime Minister Ehud Olmert," Netanyahu said Monday. The responsible parties, continued Netanyahu, "are the prime minister, the defense minister and the chief of General Staff." "If there is a meaning to taking responsibility, then the prime minister must quit, however if there is no meaning to this concept, Peretz and Halutz should be reinstated," said Netanyahu, adding: "Olmert is running from responsibility."
