Kaplinsky: We need consensus on IDF chief appointment

Deputy Chief of Staff Maj. Gen. Moshe Kaplinsky withdrew from the race to Israel Defense Forces' top job on Sunday, justifying the move with the need for a "wide consensus" on the identity of Lit. Gen. Dan Halutz' successor.


"Since you've decided, according to reports, to appoint a chief of staff soon instead of waiting for the facts related to the war to be clarified, I feel that it won't be appropriate for me to take on the chief of staff job at this moment in time," Kaplinsky wrote in a letter he sent to Defense Minister Amir Peretz.
