The Winograd Committee announced on Tuesday that its interim report on the handling of last summer's war in Lebanon would include criticism of individuals in the government and the defense establishment - particularly Prime Minister Ehud Olmert, Defense Minister Amir Peretz and former IDF chief of General Staff Lt.-Gen. Dan Halutz. The report, which will be published at the end of the month, will focus on the three top officials' responsibility for the decision to go to war, and will present an analysis of the period leading up to the war, beginning with Israel's withdrawal from Lebanon in 2000, the committee said in a statement. The announcement contradicted a Channel 2 report last week, which said that the committee's interim report would not attack individuals, but would focus on the performance of the political and defense establishments as a whole.
