Rumsfeld subpoenaed in Abu Ghraib whistleblower investigation

The story goes that an Army whistleblower in the Abu Ghraib torture scandal faced retribution in a typical Bush administration shoot-the-messenger exercise.

Then, when a Congressional committee investigating the matter sent a letter to Rumsfeld seeking information about the case, Rumsfeld chose to ignore it. In other words, the U.S. Secretary of Defense deliberately failed to cooperate with an official investigation by the U.S. Congress on a very important matter of national interest in the "war on terror".

Rumsfeld wouldn't even take a few minutes to return a phone call.

So, given no other choice, a subpoena has been issued. [Read story.]

Will Rumsfeld comply now?

Or will he still somehow manage to evade all accountability?
