It comes just a month after another mysterious incident in which four tankers -- two Saudi, one Norwegian and one Emirati -- were damaged nearby off the Emirati port of Fujairah.

There may be a hiccup, however: A source familiar with the situation cautioned that the White House will likely have access to any evidence that could implicate its equities and executive privilege, and may try to step in and block members of Congress from seeing material it deems privileged.
