This is mind-blowing. That Hamas was chilling around for 3 hours and these girls could have been rescued at any point until then and weren't is inexplicable.

Why is this news to anyone? We heard right away that there was no response to the invasion. Remember that guy from Tel Aviv who drove down with his wife to help his son? That is why people are so angry! What in the world was going on? Or rather not going on....

If only we will live to see the day after an impartial investigative commission looks into what happened leading up to that day, and on that day. I fear the truth. It won't be pretty.

Um, is there anyone in the world who would qualify to sit on such a commission?

I don't agree that the failures here were the same as the Yom Kippur war.

But look at the Agranat Commission and it's findings. They found Zeira and David Elazar responsible, while refusing to comment on Moshe Dayan. History seems to blame Golda Meri and Moshe Dayan more than anyone else, rejecting the Commission's conclusions.

So yes, any Commission would be written off by most people before they even started.

Kudos to YU for honoring Senator Fetterman with the Presidental Medallion for global leadership at its graduation ceremony next week!

I'd love if you could verbalize what you think the truth you fear might be.
We all know how the army failed, in exact symmetry with the YK War.
We know how the entire political class failed, right, left, in office, out of office,.
The entire investigation, in my opinion, will most likely be an exercise in scapegoating.
The politicians will blame the army. The army will blame the political class.
Those in office will blame their predecessors. The out of office will blame their replacements.
The right will blame the left, the left will blame the right.
The secular will blame the dati and the dati will blame the chareidim, nd the kanoim will blame the zionim arurim for not letting everyone get trampled in meron on lag baomer 2023.

Actually, eerily congruent.
Over reliance on built stationary fortifications, with zero imagination on how it could be bypassed.
Disregard of actionable intelligence that did not conform with preexisting comfortable conceptions.
Understaffing of forward posts due to YT.

This video is from a short while before the horrific video published earlier this week.

https://x.com/SlippinJimmy___/status/1793563000458334208

Truly unbearable to watch. These poor girls stranded there with no one coming to their aid. This will go down as one of the most shameful failures in the IDF's history, if not the most shameful failure. Every person in leadership at that time should be retired never to be heard from again. Inexcusable.

Not surprising from a country that committed genocide against all its Jews.
