GOP Says Politics Blocking Oversight of Spy Agencies; Democrats Say Bush Must Be Accountable

By KATHERINE SHRADER

WASHINGTON Mar 3, 2006 (AP) Stifling partisanship is preventing the Senate Intelligence Committee from overseeing the nation's spy agencies, the Senate's Republican leadership says.

The arguments, in an exchange of letters Friday, came four days before the intelligence committee was scheduled to discuss whether to open a full-blown inquiry into the National Security Agency's U.S.-based monitoring operations.

West Virginia Sen. Jay Rockefeller, the committee's top Democrat, has proposed 13 specific areas to be reviewed. Senate Intelligence Committee Chairman Pat Roberts, R-Kan., has resisted starting an in-depth review.
