(Tulsa-AP) -- Members of Oklahoma's congressional delegation don't have much to say about reports that a colleague is looking for ties between bomber Timothy McVeigh and Iraq.

The magazine U-S News and World Report says House Reform Committee Chairman Dan Burton is checking allegations that McVeigh met Iraqi agents in an Oklahoma City motel.

US Representative Ernest Istook of Warr Acres says it's best to let the FBI check out the claims before Congress gets involved.
