[NewsWithViews.com participated in a press teleconference regarding the attack on Fort Hood and its aftermath.]
A ranking US congressman said that he is concerned that President Barack Obama and his administration is being less than forthcoming with details of the Fort Hood Massacre and is withholding requested information.
U.S. Rep. Pete Hoekstra (R-MI), the top Republican on the House Intelligence Committee, claims that the Obama administration may be restricting the dissemination of information and limited information provided so far to the so-called "Gang of Eight."
Congressman Hoekstra, following up on multiple conversations with the Director of National Intelligence Dennis Blair, requested that Blair and the heads of the FBI, the NSA and the CIA direct their agencies to preserve all documents and materials relevant to the Fort Hood attack and any related investigations or intelligence collection activities.
In the past, Hoekstra strongly criticized rogue CIA employees that a CIA Inspector General's report concluded had attempted to block congressional and federal investigations into the agency's role in the shoot-down of a plane carrying the Bowers family of Muskegon, Michigan.
"I have requested this information be preserved because I believe members of the full committee on a bipartisan basis will want to scrutinize the intelligence relevant to this attack, what the agencies in possession of that intelligence did with it, who was and wasnâ€™t informed and why, and what steps Americaâ€™s intelligence agencies are taking in light of what they know," Hoekstra said.
"President Obama said people should not jump to conclusions about what happened at Fort Hood, but the administration is in possession of critical information related to the attack that they are refusing to release to Congress or the American people," Hoekstra said.
