Lieberman: Shabak "Doesn't Talk - It Just Acts"

The Knesset Foreign Affairs and Defense Committee received its first security review from Director Yoram Cohen of the Shin Bet Israel Security Agency (General Security Services) on Tuesday. Speaking to the media before the committee meeting began, Committee Chairman Avigdor Lieberman praised the agency for being the backbone of state security since the founding of the state, noting the challenges currently posed by Hizbullah, the Palestinian Authority in Judea and Samaria (Shomron), Hamas in Gaza and various groups in Sinai.

Asked by reporters if they could question Cohen, Lieberman said, "The organization['s agents] don't talk. They just do their jobs."
