Special Operations command (“Mem-Mem”) in the Military Intelligence Directorate (“Aman”) is lacking supervision for years, and nobody reviews the methods and processes of acquiring special means necessary for covert operations. This is contrary to the well supervised procedures in the Mossad and Shabak, two other secret services. This has been revealed recently by an investigation of a military commission, appointed by Defense Minister Ehud Barak, to examine the actions of Lt. Col. Boaz Harpaz, who is suspected of forgery.
