Yatom: Entire gov't responsible for war failures

Labor MK Danny Yatom said Sunday in response to the leaked sections of the Winograd Committee's interim report that the entire government, beginning with the Prime Minister Ehud Olmert and Defense Minister Amir Peretz, was responsible for the failures of the Second Lebanon War. "Whoever sits in the prime minister's or defense minister's seat is responsible, from that moment, and can't say his hands were clean," Yatom said. "All the decisions made during the war were the results of [Olmert and Peretz's] decisions, and therefore we can't cut Olmert, Peretz, or the government any slack."
