in “Condition White“?
The civilians, I can sorta understand. They relaxed and failed to appreciate the danger. Sheep are like that. They relax and forget the danger.
But the intelligence agencies? The Army and IDF and the police? Were they all asleep at the switch? Or (as has been implied) is there something else going on?
While the attack is purely Palestinian, and the blame for the deaths lie with them, one has to ask, where were the watch-dogs? That border is one of, if not the most, heavily surveilled and sensored fences/walls in the world. Where were the folks tasked to monitor and defend it? Something ain’t right.
But the Palestinians are still on the hook for the deaths and destruction, no matter who fell down on the job.
