U.S. Rep. William Keating  touched on a new  FBI directive is urging the bureau to share information with local police about terrorist threats, the Boston Herald reports. He wants to talk to the FBI.

“That’s news to me,” Keating, a Homeland Security Committee member, said. “If there’s something through these directives and meetings whereby they’re helping communication, then they’re still not communicating that with Congress.”

Boston Police Commissioner Edward F. Davis testified in a congressional hearing, saying the FBI never shared information about the slain Boston Marathon bomber, Tamerlan Tsarnaev.

Keating added: “First and foremost, the first line of defense is local. This is something that was underscored time and time again. The one biggest question I have right now is, ‘Why won’t you come in and talk to us.”
