Formal investigation be damned. 

It seems that lying in order to drag the U.S. into war is not an offense worthy of a formal investigation, according to certain members of Congress:

Majority Republicans in Congress brushed aside Democratic pleas for a formal investigation into the handling of intelligence on Iraq's weapons programs, saying Wednesday that routine oversight should suffice.

Senate Intelligence Committee Chairman Pat Roberts said some of the Democratic criticism of the handling of the intelligence has "been simply politics and for political gain."

Never mind the utter irony of the previous statement by Mr. Roberts, as we all know what the true reasons are for this war, political gain being one of them. It seems they are a little nervous about being found out.
