Olmert: I don't trust Barak with security matters

"I would very much prefer that this large a responsibility on these subjects (such as the Iranian nuclear program) will be in the hands of somebody else, not his," Olmert said. "I want someone willing to slam the table and say 'enough, this is what we're willing to do, this is what we're not.'"
