Netanyahu: Olmert’s Criticism Irresponsible

Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu termed former Prime Minister Ehud Olmert’s recent criticism “irresponsible” in an interview with Army Radio to be aired Sunday. Olmert accused Netanyahu’s administration of wasting billions of shekels on “defense fantasies” regarding Iran.

“It’s a bizarre, irresponsible thing to say,” Netanyahu said in response. “We’ve done a lot to strengthen the IDF, Mossad and Shin Bet in various ways.”
