War inquiry may go right to the top :

"The Senate Intelligence Committee may expand the scope of its investigation of intelligence failures in Iraq to include the White House's use of the information in making its case for war.

The possibility of expanding the inquiry follows signs that some of the committee's Republican members might now support longstanding Democratic demands for an examination of the White House role, congressional sources said. "
