House Intelligence Committee chairman Rep. Peter Hoekstra [(R-MI)] is still pressing U.S. intelligence agencies to look for possible weapons of mass destruction in Iraq-even though intelligence officials say further work is unlikely to reveal anything new about Saddam's WMD programs. . .
Jamal Ware, a spokesman for the intelligence [committee] chairman, confirmed to Newsweek that Hoekstra recently passed along photographs and other reports about possible WMD sites that had been forwarded to the committee by U.S. soldiers, former intelligence officials and Iraqis following the June press conference with Santorum. "People who have been over there [in Iraq] ... they've sent us information and we've referred that on to the appropriate agencies," Ware said.
"The Bush administration has not been particularly eager to embrace Hoekstra's mission," the magazine notes.
