FLASHBACK - Bush Asks Daschle to Limit September 11 Probes

President Bush personally asked Senate Majority Leader Tom Daschle
Tuesday to limit the congressional investigation into the events of
September 11, congressional and White House sources told CNN.

The request was made at a private meeting with congressional leaders
Tuesday morning. Sources said Bush initiated the conversation.

He asked that only the House and Senate intelligence committees look into
the potential breakdowns among federal agencies that could have allowed
the terrorist attacks to occur, rather than a broader inquiry that some
lawmakers have proposed, the sources said [CNN
