Anyway, this report says that the chief of the Israeli army has asked a retired major-general, Giora Eiland, to head the inquiry by a panel. In fairness, the inquiry is only about "operational issues", like presumably, did they shoot enough people quickly enough? did they move quickly enough to confiscate cameras and phones? that sort of thing but:
The move is somewhat exceptional, since the IDF is usually satisfied with internal inquests conducted by the units heading various operations.Now that tells a tale in itself but see this:
Military sources said the purpose of the panel's work it to provide objective conclusions by professional who were not a part of the operation and therefore cannot be affected by the results.Different from the ludicrous idea that élite Israeli commandos were subjected to "a brutal ambush at sea"?
This objectivity, added the sources, would allow the panel to draw a wider range of conclusions, which may shed a different light on the events.
