In a surprising reversal of position, Amir Peretz has called for a full independent investigation into the war in Lebanon.

NYT:
Israel?s Defense Chief Supports War Inquiry
By STEVEN ERLANGER

JERUSALEM, Sept. 1 ? Bowing to rebels in his own Labor Party, Defense Minister Amir Peretz of Israel called today for a full independent inquiry into the recent war in Lebanon, changing his previous position and putting him publicly at odds with Prime Minister Ehud Olmert.

Mr. Olmert, of the Kadima party, announced earlier in the week that such a state commission, appointed by the Supreme Court, was unnecessary. Instead, he announced two government-controlled investigations, one into the military?s performance and one into the government?s. The country?s comptroller-general also will look into the preparations and performance of local government officials.

What are they going to investigate? Why the cowardly Israeli soldiers didn’t kill more unarmed Lebanese civilians?
