Skelton: No Congressional Inquiry on Ft. Hood Yet

Congressman Ike Skelton is balking at an immediate investigation by Congress into the shooting rampage at Ft. Hood until investigations by the Army and FBI progress.
"It is important that we get to the bottom of this incident, but we must be careful to proceed in a deliberate, studied manner that will not interfere with the ongoing criminal investigation by the FBI and the Army's criminal investigative service, said Skelton, according to Reuters. "Right now, we need to avoid jumping to any conclusions and give the Army and the FBI a chance to do their jobs."
On the U.S. Senate side, Homeland Security Chairman Joe Lieberman says his panel will open an investigation next week.
