Former chief of general staff Lt. Gen. (res.) Moshe Ya'alon complained Sunday that his name and his statements were being enlisted for others' political uses. Ya'alon's comment followed a volley of allegations concerning statements he made last week in Washington DC, in which he commented on Israel's capacity to attack Iranian nuclear facilities. "Politicians in Israel chose to trample all over my body as they charge forward, Ya'alon said in an interview with Army Radio on Sunday morning. "I didn't reveal any national secrets. I reiterate that Israel and the west do have a military option against Iran," he added. "Apparently, politicians have an interest in this topic, and unfortunately, it works against me. I don't like it when people adopt me. The response to what I said is irresponsible and is not in line with what I actually said."
