Updated: Post’s Thomas Ricks Charges Israel Intentionally Leaving Hezbollah Rockets Intact

Thomas Ricks, Pentagon reporter for the Washington Post, charged on CNN that Israel had intentionally left some Hezbollah launchers intact to ensure that for PR purposes there would be continued killings of Israelis. This charge is nothing short of obscene. Israeli soldiers are fighting and dying in house-to-house battles to root out Hezbollah rocket teams that are trying to kill the soldiers' wives and children. Ricks should prove his charge or retract it.
