What kind of a career move is this: Barak is Prime Minister of Israel in 2000, calls for a new election and resigns, goes to work for a software company in Texas for some security work 10 months before 9/11. What?
On the evening of 9/11 Ehud shows up on BBC in London to announce for us the need for this world wide “War on Terror”. Incidentally, BBC is the largest English language media outlet on the planet, and his pal, Richard Perle is also on the program. Perle worked for Israel’s government before coming to work for Bush II’s government.
Ex-Prime Minister returns to Israel to be Defense Minister in a few years.
As a younger man and fighter for Sayeret Matkal, Ehud dresses up as a woman in heels, dropped off on the beach by a sub, goes up some stairs of an apartment, kicks in the door and machine guns a 1/2 dozen people. He got the “enemy” Israel was after and those collateral were unfortunate and Barak returns a hero.
