The Biggest Foul-up Since the Yom Kippur War

We have great admiration for your tireless efforts to #BringBackOurBoys, but we don't appreciate your claims that it wasn't your fault. It was; you were not prepared, and still haven't figured this out, nearly one week later. This might be the biggest foul-up since the Yom Kippur War. The people of Israel are united in prayer, praying that you #BringBackOurBoys quickly and punish those responsible for making their mothers cry.

I'm sorry to have to bring this up, but reports indicate that all security services have been briefed during recent months in preparation for a possible kidnapping scenario. In spite of these briefings, when it happened, they were all caught sleeping on the job, with no concerted intelligence effort on the identity of the cell who ultimately pulled this off.

Almost a full week into the search and investigation, we still have no major break through to speak of - and that's with the back-up of the entire IDF, a house to house search of 1000 homes, and the arrests of 250 of the usual suspects. Some big people need to face the nation and declare, "We failed you."
