Senator: 6,000 graves at Arlington could be wrong

As many as 6,600 graves at Arlington National Cemetery could be misidentified because managers there didn't do their job properly.

That's according to Sen. Claire McCaskill, D-Mo., who spoke at a hearing Thursday, where the cemetery's former superintendent and deputy superintendent were scheduled to testify.

McCaskill says she believes that between 4,900 and 6,600 graves may be unmarked or mislabeled on cemetery maps.

The estimate far exceeds one given by Army investigators last month that some 211 remains could be affected by the graves scandal.
