The finger-pointing continues over the question of how much warning might have been received prior to the September 11th terrorist attacks. West Central Missouri Congressman Ike Skelton – the ranking Democrat on the U.S. House Armed Services Committee – wants answers to questions arising from the controversy, but he insists the process must not get bogged down in partisan politics. Skelton says he hates that this security matter has become a political football. He concedes there are problems – not with America’s political leaders – but with the country’s intelligence gathering community. He’s concerned the left hand doesn’t always know what the right hand is doing. Skelton says it’s important to find out from the FBI and the CIA what was learned, when it was learned, and what was done with the information.
