"With us, Rabin would have not been murdered"

For the first time since the assassination of Yitzhak Rabin, two former officers of the unit assigned to protect him are speaking out. They are aghast at the behavior of their successors in the unit who failed to prevent the murder and the ease with which the assassin, Yigal Amir, entered the sterile zone and shot at the former prime minister from arm's length. For the past seventeen months, not a day has passed when the thought does not occur to them that the murder would not have happened had they not stood down.

"With us, Rabin would not have been murdered", says Tuvia Livneh.
