MK Aryeh Eldad (National Union), a member of the Knesset Foreign Affairs and Defense Committee, walked out of a committee meeting in which IDF Military Intelligence chief Amos Yadlin was making a presentation. After the presentation, several MKs tried to ask questions, but were prevented from doing so by committee chairman Tsachi HaNegbi (Kadima).
“MK HaNegbi, on a regular basis, prevents committee members from carrying out their jobs of supervising the political level of the defense establishment," Eldad said. "Under his leadership, the committee has turned into a defense team for the government, filtering out all criticism of the IDF."
“Today, HaNegbi prevented another discussion, saying that there was 'no time' to answer my question about the flotilla fiasco and the leaks in the military establishment. A military establishment that cannot be criticized is likely to repeat its mistakes,” said Eldad.
