Bush admin dragging feet on congressional Katrina probe?

That is the charge from Sen. Joe Lieberman (D-CT):
"The problems begin at the White House, where there has been a near total lack of cooperation that has made it impossible, in my opinion, for us to do the thorough investigation we have a responsibility to do... There's been no assertion of executive privilege; just a refusal to answer... My staff believes that (the Department of Homeland Security) has engaged in a conscious strategy of slow walking our investigation in the hope that we would run out of time to follow the investigation's natural progression to where it leads."
He says the panel haven't gotten the documents they've asked for and hasn't helped them get information from other agencies.
