Keating wants FBI to offer answers on bombings

WASHINGTON — Representative William R. Keating on Wednesday called on the new FBI director to “answer pressing questions” about the investigation into the Boston marathon attacks, renewing his call for the bureau to be more forthcoming about what it knew of the alleged bombers and when.

In a detailed letter to James Comey, the Bourne Democrat and member of the Homeland Security Committee called on the FBI to share all it knows about Russian warnings about the late Tamerlan Tsarnaev; clarify what intelligence may not have been adequately shared soon enough with law enforcement officials in Boston; and any loopholes that have been identified in the multiple federal databases of potential terrorist suspects to which Tsarnaev’s name had been added prior to the attacks.
