Israel: Aid ship shooting justified

Military panel admits poor planning but finds no fault in execution of deadly raid.

    The Israeli military has released its report into the deadly raid on the Gaza aid flotilla on May 31, which killed nine people.

    The 100-page document criticises the Israeli navy for "serious errors" in preparing and carrying out the assault at sea.

    But when it came to the conduct of Israeli soldiers during the raid, the report found no wrongdoing and instead, praised officers who took part in it.

    Al Jazeera's Sherine Tadros reports from Jerusalem.

    No, it wasn't because of WMDs, democracy or Iraqi oil. The real reason is much more sinister than that.
