NEW SELECT COMMITTEE ON INTELLIGENCE CHAIRMAN TO BE DECIDED!
Two Republicans are vying for its chairmanship. William "Mac" Thornberry, 52, whose family runs a cattle ranch in northern Texas, and Mike Rogers, 47, of Michigan. Thornberry proposed creating a new Homeland Security Department six months before the Sept. 11 attack. Rogers served in the Army in the 1980s before going to work for the FBI, investigating public corruption as part of the Chicago bureau's organized crime unit. He was an active player in moving the anti-terrorist Patriot Act and in legislation on wiretapping.
