Rumsfeld may widen abuse investigations

Rueters reports:

Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld may widen the investigation into abuses of Iraqi prisoners to include top military ranks, and has also ordered that he be told about the death of any prisoner in U.S. military custody, officials said on Thursday.
As I have said before, this needs to be fully investigated and any who are guilty need to be punished. This increases my confidence that this is happening.
Rumsfeld is also considering a request made this week by Central Command head Army Gen. John Abizaid, commander of U.S. forces in the Middle East, to replace a two-star Army general investigating the abuse scandal, defense officials said. The move would replace Maj. Gen. George Fay with a more senior general and open the way for questioning of top U.S. officers to help determine who is responsible for the scandal.
Basically Sanchez is asking that someone more senior be appointed to he can be questioned himself. Doesn't sound to me like the behavior of someone who has something to hide.
