PM sources reject accusation that he blamed IDF

Sources close to Prime Minister Ehud Olmert rejected MK accusations following the publication of his testimony to the Winograd Committee that he had foisted responsibility for the war's failures on the IDF. "We invite the public to read Ehud Olmert's entire testimony to the Winograd Committee," the sources said. "This is responsible, considered testimony. The prime minister did not blame anyone, the opposite. His testimony offers a picture of a prime minister who is human, who hesitates, gets upset, consults, asks questions and makes decisions after careful consideration," the sources continued.
