Exit Avigdor Lieberman?

I haven’t devoted much space to the implications of Avigdor Lieberman holding the job of Israeli foreign minister, because I never expected a guy giving nine-hour interviews to corruption investigators to last long in it. Sure enough, now word comes that Lieberman’s facing the very serious possibility of indictment. Am I the only one who figured Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahuhad given Lieberman the foreign ministry because he expectedLieberman to take a fall, and soon? If that really was the plan, it looks like it might work to perfection.
