Hizbullah and Lebanese officials were mostly mum Monday after an Israeli government report accused the country's wartime leaders of severe failures during last summer's war against the guerrilla group in Lebanon. But one Hizbullah official had harsh words for embattled Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert and others, saying the report confirmed that Israel's leaders were in a state of confusion during the 34-day war. The report "confirmed the inability of the Israeli political and military leadership to take the appropriate decision to confront Hizbullah during the summer war," Sheik Hassan Ezzeddine, Hizbullah's most senior political officer in southern Lebanon, told The Associated Press. Other Hizbullah officials declined to comment on the report, saying they needed time to carefully read it. A spokesman for Lebanese Prime Minister Fuad Saniora also declined to immediately comment.
