Israel not at fault in deadly Freedom Flotilla raid, explains Israel

I think this passage from the New York Times speaks for itself.

TEL AVIV — An Israeli military investigation into its naval takeover of a Gaza-bound flotilla six weeks ago found that it was plagued by errors of planning, intelligence and coordination but the killings of nine Turks on board were justified, according to an official summary of the findings released Monday.

Numerous groups have called for an independent, international investigation, claiming that an Israeli-led inquiry would by definition be insufficient.    Yesterday’s report will likely do little to silence those critics, nor should it.

Israel rejected those calls.  Though the report does cite intelligence failures, it cleared the commandos — who killed 9 Turks, one of whom was an American citizen — of wrongdoing.

    Hey, those are the same excuses Bush used for the monumental crapout in that Iraq thingy. Did he sell his lecture notes to Bibi?
