Saturday's Death Toll Hits 24

24 IDF Soldiers were killed Saturday, bringing the total soldier death toll for the war to over 100.

Dan Halutz says he does not fear a post-war investigation of the conduct of the war. There will be an investigation. So many Israelis, for so long, were saying that a bigger ground invasion was necessary. That it was done just before the cease-fire (which is worse for Israel the more I learn about it) will be a part of any investigation.

My question regarding the investigation: will it be limited to the military or will the executive's decision-making process be questioned, specifically will the Prime Minister and Defense Minister be called upon to explain their conduct of the war? In my opinion, any investigation lacking the executive (including the entire security cabinet) will not be sufficient.
