NPR's Jim Zarroli reports that Enron whistleblower Sherron Watkins told a Senate panel today the company missed "a brief window of opportunity" to salvage itself last year. Watkins said Enron's CEO, Kenneth Lay, failed to recognize the company had manipulated its financial statements. Watkins sat at the same table with another former Enron CEO, Jeffrey Skilling. Skilling repeated his earlier testimony that he did not know Enron was in financial trouble when he resigned in August last year.
