McCaul leads investigation into Boston Marathon bombings

In his opening statement today, Congressman Michael McCaul, chair of the House Homeland Security Committee, said it’s been three months since the latest terrorist attack on U.S. soil. He says it’s his committee’s responsibility to find out how we didn’t see it coming. “What concerns me greatly is that the problem at the heart of preventing the Boston bombings is the failure to share information and that is being witnessed in this very room.”

McCaul says the FBI failed to appear at the hearing and continues to refuse the Committee’s requests for information and documents into what happened in Boston. He also notes the government’s failure to connect the dots could have prevented that  tragedy.  He says the investigation will look at how far the U.S. has come since 9-11, which means reviewing how intelligence is shared.
