Winograd: Iran Attack a Very Bad Idea

Former High Court judge Eliyahu Winograd, who headed the committee that investigated the background to the IDF's difficulties in the Second Lebanon War, on Sunday expressed his opposition to an Israeli attack on Iranian nuclear facilities. In an interview on Army Radio, Winograd that he was “not convinced that the decision makers have actually put into action the conclusions from the investigative committee on the Second Lebanon War. If that is the case then we are all in big trouble,” Winograd said in the interview, referring to the checks and balances in the decision-making process he recommended.

Winograd slammed Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu and Defense Minister Ehud Barak, saying that they were “endangering the state, physically and economically. Barak, you said that there would be no more than 500 dead? Based on what? Can you say for sure? I do not know what their reasons are, but it is very irresponsible,” he added.
