Olmert says he told the truth in his memoirs

Former prime minister Ehud Olmert said Sunday that "when you write memoirs, there is contemplation about whether to write what really happened or cut corners in order to not anger," in reaction to controversy caused by the release of portions of a book that he is writing in which he fiercely attacked Defense Minister Ehud Barak.
Olmert said "over the past two days, stormy winds have been caused over what I wrote in my memoirs that will come out soon."
"I decided to write things exactly as they were without skewing it in one way or another," Olmert continued.
