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.
