Sen. Pat Roberts, R-Kan., continues to draw fire for his slow-going inquiry into how the Bush administration handled prewar intelligence about Iraq and his apparent reluctance to hold the White House accountable on other issues, such as the warrantless domestic eavesdropping. Roberts’ latest blow came Sunday from The New York Times editorial board, which said he’s running the Iraq inquiry “in a way that makes it unlikely that anything useful will come of it” but nevertheless urged: “The least Mr. Roberts and his committee can do is to finish the flawed investigation and make the results public.” Such impatience is well-founded. As we said in an Eagle editorial nearly three years ago on Roberts’ inquiry — “what is at stake is the credibility of the American intelligence system.”
