The article reports that the probe U.S. House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform regarding the prewar intelligence has again postponed a hearing on June 19, 2007. The impasse with Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice, who refuses to testify and the bad lack of the panel to secure a deposition of Stephen Hadley, suggests that the administration will not budge in prohibiting senior officials to testify. According to Carolyn Maloney, the probe should go beyond its focus on senior aides.
