Slippery Slope

Notes From a Crumbling Democracy

Military and Security Forces: 31 August 2010

without comments

State Comptroller Michal Lindenstrauss has issued a report examining the appointment processes for senior ranks of military officers. According to the report, senior officers have not been appropriately trained and were appointed primarily for their personal relationships with the Chief of Staff and the Minister of Defense. The report further states that the Israeli army does not meet its own criteria for hiring senior officers, and appointment of generals is neither documented nor run under clear and transparent rules.
