Shuttle panel divided over NASA compliance, MSNBC

"I heard things went non-linear on the first day when [task group member] Dan Crippen basically led a revolt," against Tom Stafford and Richard Covey, the two former astronauts leading the group, the CAIB member told MSNBC.com on condition of anonymity.
