Protocols of Golda Meir at Agranat Commission released

Published: 09.12.13, 16:38 / Israel News

40 years after the Yom Kippur War, excerpts have been released of Prime Minister Golda Meir’s testimony to the commission investigating events leading up to the war.


In her testimony, Meyer explained, "I did not think I could argue with military intelligence, the chief of staff." Even so, in testimony fraught with regrets, Meir refused to regret not authorizing a preemptive Air Force strike, "I think I can say with full confidence that had we gone to a preemptive strike, I have confidence that the 'Air Lift' (US air support) would not have come." (Roi Mandel and Yaron Druckman)
