The house intelligence committee is laying the groundwork for a possible investigation of the program and its concealment from congress. In late june it asked the cia to provide documents about the now-canceled program to kill al-qaida leaders. Agency officials say it is complying with the request. Panetta has at the same time ordered a thorough internal review of the program. The committee will try to establish how much was spent on the effort, whether any training was conducted and whether any officials traveled in association with the program, a committee official said. Those factors would determine whether the program had progressed enough to require congressional notification. House intelligence committee chairman silvestre reyes is expected to decide as early as this week whether to press ahead with a full investigation.
