"It's a good start, and it was very useful," said Representative Jane Harman of California, the ranking Democrat on the House panel. "But I don't believe it complies with the National Security Act, which requires that the committees be kept fully informed of intelligence activities."
The White House change of heart occurred at the last minute, said both Ms. Wilson and Ms. Harman, who said they learned just an hour or so before the 1 p.m. briefing that General Hayden would be offering 'a general description of how the program operates,' in Ms. Harman's words.
Ms. Wilson said that even after the briefing, she still did not believe she had a full view of the program. But she said she expected that her questions would be addressed in additional closed-door meetings.
