Olmert's slip of the tongue

Olmert said in an interview today that the war in Lebanon will enable the disengagement from the west bank (Palestinian territories). Making a statement on a controversial issue hurts the unanimous consensus around his leadership in this war and its goals, and it is unlikely he said it on purpose.

If indeed this is a slip of the tongue, then Olmert actually meant what he said. One of Olmert's concern is that after the disengagement, Palestinian rockets will cover all Israeli major cities. It is now clear that if the missiles from Lebanon and Gaza will not cease after the war, then the disengagement from the west bank will not take place.
