    As the Israel Air Force continues to investigate the air strike, questions have been raised over military accounts of the incident.

    It now appears that the military had no information on rockets launched from the site of the building, or the presence of Hezbollah men at the time.

    The Israel Defense Forces had said after the deadly air-strike that many rockets had been launched from Qana. However, it changed its version on Monday.

    The site was included in an IAF plan to strike at several buildings in proximity to a previous launching site. Similar strikes were carried out in the past. However, there were no rocket launches from Qana on the day of the strike. [link]

    While I would argue that we in the west must maintain the high ground in any war, and not stoop to terrorism or to the level of a terrorist, as we fight them. We're better equipped, among other things, to stoop this low. I would bet none of the Northern Israeli towns were firing rockets at Southern Lebanon, so this exchange is mutual in some respects. Still it seems that this mistake at Qana will set back Israel (and by proxy America) for the rest of this conflict and well after.
