Rep. Bill Keating’s Letter to the FBI: Boston Bombing’s Unanswered Questions

Bill Keating FBI Director James Comey Letter Boston Marathon Bombings

Boston Congressman William Keating has written a letter addressed to new FBI Director James Comey outlining his unanswered questions relating to the Boston Marathon Bombing, reports The Boston Globe.

Read the full letter here:

His questions relate to alleged security shortcomings within different government agencies in the lead-up to the bombs. On April 15, three people were killed and hundreds more injured when two bombs exploded close to the finish line of the Boston Marathon. The bombs were allegedly planted by Tamerlan Tsarnaev and his younger brother, Dzhokhar. Tamerlan was killed three days after the explosion and his brother was captured by police 24 hours later.

In a public statement, Rep. Keating said:

It has been three and a half months since the terror attack in Boston, and the FBI has yet to answer the pressing questions that would help law enforcement and legislators better prepare against threats in the future, as a former District Attorney, I understand the sensitivities surrounding an ongoing investigation; however, none of the questions I have would compromise the integrity of the investigation into the bombings.

I’m not looking to place blame. What I am looking to do is identify our security shortcomings and change them. Without forthright information from the FBI, we are prevented from taking the critical steps needed to protect the American public. It is my hope that Director Comey makes this a priority because I intend to keep demanding answers until I receive them.
