Prime Minister Ehud Olmert and Defense Minister Amir Peretz met with the Winograd Committee on Thursday to discuss their versions of events during the war in Lebanon. The committee's coordinator Mani Ben-Haim told The Jerusalem Post that "these were polite conversations ahead of the period of research the committee is undertaking in the upcoming weeks."

  • The second Lebanon war: special report In the next phase of the investigation the committee will examine documents and evidence related to the conduct of the war and will develop the questions that it will ask the hundreds of expected witnesses and committee invitees. The committee met with Olmert on Thursday morning and while committee representatives would only say that the prime minister gave committee members his version of events, the Prime Minister's Office refused to comment on the meeting. Defense Minister Amir Peretz met with the committee on Thursday evening. The committee has already met for informal discussions with IDF chief of General Staff Lt.-Gen. Dan Halutz and outgoing OC Northern Command Maj.-Gen. Udi Adam. Anything said in meetings is not considered testimony.
