Minister Uzi Landau: Who Was the Leak in the Cabinet?


Minister of Tourism Uzi Landau this morning (Monday) called for approval to have the GSS (General Security Services, or Shin-Bet) open an investigation to discover which minister leaked information to the media exposing IDF plans that were presented to the Cabinet over the course of Operation Protective Edge. Landau told Galei Tzahal (Army Radio) that this could include the use of polygraph tests on the ministers to determine the truth, due to the seriousness of the indiscretion.

Landau’s request stemmed from information that was leaked to the media that described an extreme scenario put before the Cabinet by the IDF. Channel 2 military correspondent, Roni Daniel, had reported last week that the scenario depicted had been used in order to discourage ministers from approving an operation thrusting deep into Gaza.
