Probe Clears Israel in Flotilla Raid (Exclusive audio report)

In an exclusive interview and report from June, 2010, an American-Israeli maritime security expert told Dave Bender what an international probe proved seven months later: the naval commandos acted correctly and in self-defense aboard the Mavi Marmara, in a battle between Israel and its sworn enemies.

Listen in here:
"The naval blockade imposed on the Gaza Strip – in view of the security circumstances and Israel's efforts to comply with its humanitarian obligations – was legal pursuant to the rules of international law. The actions carried out by Israel on May 31, 2010, to enforce the naval blockade had the regrettable consequences of the loss of human life and physical injuries. Nonetheless, and despite the limited number of uses of force for which we could not reach a conclusion, the actions taken were found to be legal pursuant to the rules of international law."
