The IDF's "Public-Relations Burden"

Idf6State comptroller Micha Lindenstrauss slammed the government's hasbara efforts during the Second Lebanon War. The Jerusalem Post writes:

The comptroller further found that the public-relations burden throughout the war was incorrectly placed on the IDF. In his report, Lindenstrauss wrote that a severe lack of coordination between the Foreign Ministry, IDF, Defense Ministry and Prime Minister's Office was evident and contributed to Israel's failure in properly transmitting its messages to the public and the world.

Lindenstrauss also concluded that the government failed to set up an effective media center during the war for the foreign press. The Foreign Ministry, the report claimed, was not prepared to handle the press during a state of emergency.
