Chain of Command?

From an article about the Iraq prison abuses in today's Strib:
Sen. Joe Biden of Delaware, ranking Democrat on the Foreign Relations Committee, said Rumsfeld should resign if the chain of responsibility reaches his office.

Rumsfeld? What about the President? Bush is commander-in-chief, and ultimately responsible for all actions of all members of the military. So Bush either:

1. Didn't know what was going on, which makes him an inefficient commander,
2. Knew all along but did nothing, which makes him a bad commander.

The wheels are coming off.
