Steven C. LaTourette: committee is still out there, the person that really came under the harshest scrutiny at the beginning was the senator from connecticut, senator dodd. i would just suggest, madam speaker, that he has a vested interest in finding this out just like we do. because when you don't know who did it, when you won't help us find out who did it and have people come clean, people begin
