Spin out of that

Outgoing PM Ehud Olmert has said in an interview that Israel needs to give up just about all the land it grabbed in 1967, including dividing Jerusalem, to achieve peace.

Tucked at the bottom of the Guardian story is an interesting observation from the interviewers:
Olmert's goal, wrote Barnea and Shiffer, was to defend his conduct and leave a legacy, a legacy that might make life harder for Tzipi Livni, who is trying to form a coalition government that would make her prime minister. "There is no diplomatic fog in this interview that she can hide behind," they noted.
