Well, Maybe We'll Cooperate, Since You Insist

The CIA has decided, for now, to cooperate with the Congressional demands for documents and witnesses. The fact that the subpoenas were being prepared was apparently enough to convince the CIA and the Administration that they didn't want to be seen as obstructionist. For now.
