PM: If forced to choose between Barak, Friedmann, I'd choose Friedmann

Prime Minister Ehud Olmert on Monday referred to Justice Minister Daniel Friedmann's proposal to split the position of attorney general, and attacked Defense Minister Ehud Barak. Barak, Olmert insinuated, was "confused", and threatening Kadima from his position "at the bottom of the ladder." "I don't know who will be the [next] head of Kadima, but I am the prime minister and if I need to chose between Ehud Barak and Professor Daniel Friedmann, I will chose Friedmann," said the prime minister.
