This testimony compilation is from the July 10, 2013 hearing "Assessing Attacks on the Homeland: From Fort Hood to Boston" before the U.S. House Committee on Homeland Security. From the opening statement of Michael McCaul: "Three months ago, there was a terrorist attack in our country, and it is this committee's responsibility to find out how we did not see it coming. What concerns me greatly is that the problem at the heart of preventing the Boston bombings -- the failure to share information -- is being witnessed now in this very room. 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. I said when I started this investigation that we were going to find out what happened, what went wrong and how to fix it, and I will not be satisfied until we get the answers that the American people deserve. As Dzhokar arrives in court today, justice is just beginning. Today, we turn to making sure what he did, is prevented from ever happening again." Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: Michael McCaul, Rudy Giuliani, Michael Leiter, Bruce Hoffman, John Cohen, and Matthew G. Olsen.
