Despite wider remit, soldiers won't be questioned in Gaza flotilla probe

The panel investigating last month's botched raid on a Gaza-bound flotilla will soon receive greater authority after its chairman, retired justice Jacob Turkel, told the government the committee could not do its job without expanded investigative powers.

Channel 2 television reported last night that Turkel even threatened to resign if his demands were not met. A spokesman for his committee, however, denied this.

Wouldn't it only be logical to question those who were actually there? If you can't question the soldiers, then you certainly aren't going to get to the bottom of the issue. It looks as if Ehud Barak is definitely trying to hide something, though I'm sure that notion is obvious anyway.

As far as Turkel wanting more teeth to the investigation, I can't seem to discern whether this is a political stunt to make it appear as if he is going to be fair, or if it is a sincere request. I guess time will only tell.
