Reuters said that Obama will participate in the questioning. However, he is not a member of the committee. Does anyone know how or why this came to be? I'd like to include the explaination in the article, so if you have a source, it'd be appreciated. --SVTCobra 15:31, 8 April 2008 (UTC)Reply

Both will also testify before the Foreign Relations Committee later today, of which Sen. Obama is a member. --+Deprifry+ 16:08, 8 April 2008 (UTC)Reply
OK, thank you. I thought someone had given him a "special pass" because he's running for president. --SVTCobra 16:11, 8 April 2008 (UTC)Reply
This is the United States Senate we're talking about, the most rule-obsessed body ever conceived. Jesus wouldn't get a "special pass" there. --+Deprifry+ 16:15, 8 April 2008 (UTC)Reply
