IDF chief Dan Halutz resigns

And with good reason. Ynetnews has a whole page of coverage on him, starting with the official news of his announcement:
Since the end of the second Lebanon war, many voices called for the Chief of General Staff to leave his post. Among them were senior politicians and a movement of reservists.

The sword of the Winograd commission, which was investigating the war, was also swinging over Halutz's head, although he did not wait for them to issue their intermediate report before resigning.

IDF sources explained that the general made his decision once investigations of the war came to an end, and after the 2007 annual military schedule was approved.
His official letter of resignation. Then, as told over here:
Halutz quits after realizing he was unable to regain public's trust
That's something that Olmert and Peretz will have to come to terms with as well, as they are now unable to regain the public trust either.

About me

  • I'm Avi Green
  • From Jerusalem, Israel
  • I was born in Pennsylvania in 1974, and moved to Israel in 1983. I also enjoyed reading a lot of comics when I was young, the first being Fantastic Four. I maintain a strong belief in the public's right to knowledge and accuracy in facts. I like to think of myself as a conservative-style version of Clark Kent. I don't expect to be perfect at the job, but I do my best.
