Photo reveals why Israel lost the war with Hezbollah

Taken two days ago during an IDF drill in the Golan Heights. The man on the right? Israeli Defense Minister Amir Peretz.


The worst part:

The photographer said Peretz raised the capped binoculars three times, nodding as [Lt. Gen. Gabi] Ashkenazi explained what he was “seeing.”

Exit question: Given what’s happening across the border right now, is it time for Peretz to join Rumsfeld in oblivion?

Update: This explains a lot.

Update: Reader James B. e-mails to say he doesn’t think Bush’s binoculars have the lens caps on. Rather, what we’re seeing are anti-reflectors.
