House Committee Grows Impatient with FBI, Justice Department’s Handling of Boston Bombing Case

If the U.S. wants to stop an attack similar to the Boston Marathon bombing, the Justice Department and FBI must do a better job sharing information with local law enforcement, officials told lawmakers Wednesday, The Hill reports.

“We can no longer deal with this by not sharing information. We’re going to miss other Bostons if the federal government doesn’t engage the local police department in a very, very big way,” said Rudy Giuliani, who was mayor of New York City during the 9/11 attacks.

“They’re our only asset to finding these isolated single individuals and small groups,” Giuliani said. 

Wednesday was the second day of a hearing by the House’s Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee to determine how the suspected bombers managed to escape capture.

“The FBI has refused to appear, and continues to refuse this committee’s appropriate requests for information and documents crucial to our investigation into what happened in Boston,” House Homeland Security Committee Chairman Mike McCaul, R-Texas, said.

“The information requested by this committee belongs to the American people. It does not belong solely to the FBI, and I sincerely hope they do not intend to stonewall our inquiry into how this happened.”
