Netanyahu: Olmert refuses to take responsibility for Second Lebanon War

Opposition Leader Binyamin Netanyahu blasted Prime Minister Ehud Olmert on Monday, saying that he refuses to take responsibility for the failures that occurred during the Second War in Lebanon. "The PM doesn't understand what the reservists know," Netanyahu said. "Everyone else took responsibility and just one man, the prime minister, who is at the top, refuses to take responsibility." Netanyahu added that he welcomed Defense Minister Ehud Barak's statement that the diplomatic level was responsible for the war, and urged the Labor chairman to keep his promise and quit the government after the publication of the final Winograd report.
