Sen. Joe Lieberman, D-Conn., and Sen. Susan Collins, R-Maine, say they will issue subpoenas next week to the Pentagon and the Justice Department unless both departments end what they call foot-dragging in cooperating with the Homeland Security & Governmental Affairs Committees probe of the Fort Hood shootings.
At a Capitol Hill news conference today, both senators said theyd been patient with the administration in the five months since the probe began, but dont buy the administrations concern that providing access to records and individuals to the committee might compromise the prosecution of alleged shooter, Army Major Nidal Hasan.
Lieberman said committee staff had repeatedly exchanged letters with Gates and AG Holder, but that the response had been much foot-dragging, with very limited assistance and changing reasons for why the administration cant provide us with the information requested. He called the administrations response to a legitimate congressional inquiry inadequate and unreasonable.

This is not the type of bipartisanship the President expects...
There hasn't been much about this in the MSM... wonder why?
no, Joe Lieberman is an INDEPENDENT now. He got kicked out of the Democrat Party because he didn’t side with them on bailing in Iraq.
Obummer is hiding that the shooter was friends with the Whitehouse party crashers Tareq and Michaele Salahi and that he went to the same mosque as Hassan.
Collins and Lieberman are fighting the good fight, but they should not expect much cooperation from the pentagon hierarchy.
That bunch is morphing into a bunch of damn stalinists, complete with “brain scans” and other Soviet tactics for anyone who challenges obama.
Bunch of damn politically correct drones and opportunist weasels who would sooner see 14 people murdered at Fort Hood than acknowledge the fact that their politically correct programs get great Americans killed.
THIS is news. Lieberman and Collins?
Do I perceive a crack in the Obama-Armor?
It would seem that no one wants to admit that the guy’s an effing Moslem terrorist, and that those in authority should have seen the entire episode coming.
I think you’re right. For some reason they don’t want this info out there. I have a feeling someone pulled the “trigger” on this robot too soon or his “trigger” malfunctioned and he went off before he was supposed to. Or maybe he shot the wrong people.
Plus, he knows way too much. He was supposed to die, damn it! Get Rahm “Dead Fish” in here!
TWO WITNESSES THAT SAY OBAMA KNEW ABOUT THE CONNECTION TO THE IMMAN....WOULD MAKE OBAMA A TRAITOR....
Is anyone in Washington DC paying attention to what is going on?
Do we have the Manchurian Shooter being covered up by the Manchurian President?
The dirty moslem Hasan was on 0bama’s “Presidential Transition Team” in October 2008.
Omoslem should thank his magic carpet that many Americans are too stupid to put 2+2 together and conclude the obvious: That Omoslem is stacking the government/military deck with a cabal of filthy stinking moslem traitors.
If I didn't know any better, I would swear Washington is orchestrating most of it.
And it appears the shooter is too.
Actually, Lieberman is an independent, unless he changed back to D.
That’s what I thought.
He hasn’t changed back.
Because its not true?
Great - the RINO is trying to act like a Republican.
I’m not fooled, even if she opposed Obamacare and supported EVERY conservative for the Supreme Court. No, I’m not fooled, I know that a Northeastern DEMOCRAT would do far better for this Conservative.
Go go go go stand for the truth and don’t hold back. Ofakery is all smoke and mirrors- this government is like a bunch of children. Remember Holder when he said we nation of children. Well I say t it is time for some mature adults to claim the sandbox back!!
