Watchdog organization the Movement for Quality Government expressed satisfaction on Tuesday with the Winograd Committee's decision to include in its interim report personal recommendations against Prime Minister Ehud Olmert, Defense Minister Amir Peretz and former IDF chief of General Staff Lt.-Gen. Dan Halutz, Army Radio reported. "There is definitive importance in [the fact that] the criticism of these three individuals will be specifically about the decision to go to war," the group said. Reservists, too, were satisfied with the committee's announcement. "The Winograd Committee is starting to carry out what should have been done in the first place, but Olmert and Peretz shouldn't wait for the conclusions - [they] should resign immediately." Sources in the Prime Minister's Office declined to respond until the committee's conclusions are published.
