Preventing Another Boston Marathon Bombing: Reviewing the Lessons Learned from the 2013 Terror Attack [open pdf - 280KB]
"In March 2014, the Committee on Homeland Security completed its investigation of the Boston Marathon bombing, which occurred on April 15, 2013, and released a report entitled 'The Road to Boston: Counterterrorism Challenges and Lessons from the Marathon Bombings'. The report identified four key areas needing improvement and issued seven recommendations to help strengthen the Federal government's counterterrorism efforts. Since the report was released the Committee has continued to monitor the progress of the Federal government in closing the gaps that contributed to the tragic events in Boston. The Committee has actively exercised its oversight responsibility, and engaged with the Executive Branch, State and local officials, and outside experts in a robust dialogue to monitor progress in the four areas identified for improvement."
