"The Israeli Army is not a course and does not need rehabilitation. There are revelations of things that are not in working order, whether it is equipment or the activation of troops. It will all be examined. Everything that needs to be examined will be examined without exception, but from here there is no need to speak about rehabilitation. The Israeli Army does not need rehabilitation.”
So said Prime Minister Ehud Olmert at a government meeting after Minister Without Portfolio Jacob Edery asked the Chief of Staff, “What is being done regarding the rehabilitation of the (Israeli) Army?” Chief of Staff Dan Halutz also responded by saying that there is no need to use the term “rehabilitation,” rather “repair defects.” “The word ‘rehabilitation’ is not a suitable word,” said Halutz.
