The Pentagon says it will provide some but not all of the materials a Senate committee wants on last year's Fort Hood shooting rampage, setting up a potential legal showdown with Congress.

The Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee had demanded that the Pentagon share specific documents and witnesses about the deadly incident by Tuesday morning.

Senators have said they want to be sure the Pentagon is working to prevent another such incident. An unusual Senate subpoena asked for material the Pentagon claims would jeopardize prosecution of the suspect, Major Nidal Hasan.

Committee spokeswoman Leslie Phillips said that "as far as we're concerned they have not complied with the subpoena." She said the panel is considering its next step.
