IDF Asks Court To Prevent Publishing Winograd Report

IDF lawyers have filed an appeal to the High Court asking for a temporary injunction against publication of the final report of the Winograd Committee on government and military failures in the Second Lebanon War. The IDF argued that the committee reneged on an agreement to issue letters of warning to army officers who were probed and who might suffer from the report.

The Winograd Committee has stated it will not issue the letters because it would rather publish the report in the next several weeks without naming individuals rather than defining individual responsibility, which would require several months of perusing the material and issuing warning letters.
