Moshe Ya'alon Tears into DM Ehud Barak

At a  "Saturday culture" even in Ramat Gan, Vice Prime Minister Moshe Ya'alon slammed Minister of Defense Ehud Barak saying the DM favored his own political concerns over the much more pressing national ones. 

"The defense minister preferred (to act on) political considerations rather than national ones," he said, criticizing Barak for agreeing on an agressive stance towards Iran and then, only later, "he backtracked and even presented himself as a moderate."
