Senator Pat Roberts, Chairman of the Senate Intelligence Commitee, wants to end the probe on pre-war Iraqi intelligence. The Republican from Kansas called on lawmakers to finish the examination by April 2006. Roberts plan to release the results to the public. Democrats displayed dismay to Robert's plans, claiming not much has been found. Dennis Morgan tells the full story in his Reuters article:

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The chairman of the Senate intelligence committee on Tuesday urged lawmakers to begin wrapping up the second phase of its investigation into U.S. intelligence on prewar Iraq, despite fresh demands from Democrats for further scrutiny.

Sen. Pat Roberts, the Kansas Republican, laid out a schedule for completing four of the investigation's five segments by the end of April and pledged to release much of the findings to the public.

The largest segment of the Phase 2 investigation, which has increasingly become a lightning rod for partisan squabbling, promises to examine whether Bush administration officials exaggerated intelligence on Iraq as they made their public case for war in 2002 and 2003.

Roberts unable to budge from his decision only communicates "shadow tactics". Personally, it is important to see what thinking launched the second Gulf War. The Intelligence Committee must not cut the hearings short for the sake of political engineering. If the Senator from Kansas does not allow further discovery into the intelligence behind the US intervention in Iraq, much needed information will be swept under the rug. What use will the released and printed record have in the American public's hands?
