The most honest man in the world

I’m starting to think that, for all his faults, Ehud Olmert is the most honest man in the world.  He has confirmed:

  1. The existence and power of the Lobby in American politics.
  2. The Israeli nuclear program.
  3. The fact that the Iraq war was good for Israeli security.
  4. The Israeli surveillance capabilities with respect to Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas.
  5. The fact that the attack on Lebanon was pre-planned, and presumably just awaited a fortuitous time and an excuse.

The latest admission confirms the idea that the Israeli soldiers, about whom we have heard much wailing and weeping from the Israeli right, were sent into Lebanon as bait to start a war.
