US intelligence officials reviewing bomb plot leaks

WASHINGTON - The head of a congressional intelligence panel said on Wednesday he was concerned that the Obama administration did not brief members of Congress earlier about the foiled underwear bomb plot and said it raised a whiff of election-year politics.
The comments by Mike Rogers, chairman of the House of Representatives intelligence committee, came as a senior US intelligence official said the intelligence community has begun an "internal review" into possible leaks of classified information about the "underwear bomb" operation. The review is not considered at this point to be an investigation, which would have criminal implications.
