Seriously, that’s my only question when I read this story...
Sen. Pat Roberts (R-Kan.), who chairs the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence, said he wants to divide his panelÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢s inquiry into the Bush administrationÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢s handling of Iraq-related intelligence into two parts, a move that would push off its most politically controversial elements to a later time.
The inquiry has dragged on for more than two years, a slow pace that prompted Democrats to force the Senate into an extraordinary closed-door session in November. Republicans then promised to speed up the probe.
Roberts said in an interview shortly before the April recess that he could bring up the matter in a business meeting of the Intelligence Committee scheduled for tomorrow.
ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã…â€œWe went over three reports that members are studying,ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã‚? Roberts said, referring to three less controversial components of his committeeÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢s inquiry. Roberts said his committee could approve the immediate publication of those components.
ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã…â€œWeÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢ll have a business meeting first thing when we come back. IÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢d like to show some progress,ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã‚? he said.
