Israeli Officials Admit Hamas Leadership Had No Part in Kidnappings

To paraphrase Mark Twain: "A lie goes around the world before the truth has time to get its shoes on."

from democracy now webpage:

The Israeli government has quietly acknowledged Hamas leaders had no role in the abduction of three Israeli teens that led to a massive raid in the West Bank and the ensuing Gaza assault. According to the New York Times, documents released by Israeli police "provide no evidence that the top leaders of Hamas directed or had prior knowledge of the plot to abduct the three Israeli youths." The Israeli newspaper Haaretz reports Israeli intelligence has concluded the abduction "was carried out by an independent cell."
