Israel’s Idea of an “Independent” Inquiry into the Attack on the Flotilla
Someone should tell Mr. Netanyahu that he is supposed to wait until after the inquiry to announce its predetermined findings:
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said at the start of Monday’s cabinet meeting that the main goal of the Gaza flotilla probe is to prove to the world that the Israel Navy operation on the Gaza-bound aid ship was appropriate and met international standards.
“The government decision will make it clear to the world that Israel is acting legally, responsibly, and with complete transparency,” said Netanyahu.
Kind of puts Israel’s desperate hand-wringing about the Goldstone Report into perspective, doesn’t it?
