ex Israeli spy chief tells it how it is

DAgan didn't tell 'how it is"; he told how HE THINKS it is.
As for "He did not elaborate, but Israel suffered heavy losses in the 1973 Mideast war after leaders ignored warnings from intelligence chiefs and were caught off guard by invading Syrian and Egyptian armies"
- that is totally wrong. The Yom Kippur War broke out with intelligence chiefs NOT giving ANY warnings: this is fully documented many times over.
Almost 40 years later, the name of THE intelligence chief at the outbreak of the Yom Kippur war, Major-General Eli Zeira, is still a name lacking in respect.

I'm sure Dagan's credibility is no match for yours, Ian.

ignoring the facts, as usual.
I cast no aspersions whatsoever on Dagan's credibilty; I have extreme respect for the man, his capabilities, his personal bravery and his many achievements.
That still makes his opinion just one of a few that are equally valuable.

Dagan might be the next Israeli PM. Hopefully, he will be. He certainly was a good head of Mossad.
