Ya'a'on: Olmert's Comments Apparently Unlawful

Strategic Affairs Minister Moshe Ya'alon said, Sunday, that remarks by former prime minister Ehud Olmert on the newstalk show "Uvda" (Fact) were illegal. Interviewed by Arutz Sheva's Hebrew service, the former chief of staff said Olmert discussed classified information without authority when he talked about Israel's plans against the Iranian nuclear threat. He added, "This is information which may be revealed when they open the archives in a few decades...."

The deputy premier said Olmert broke some barriers to advance political interests at the expense of national ones.
