Comment On White House Release Of Summary Of The Inventory Files Related To Fort Hood Shooting

“The preliminary findings on the Fort Hood shooting that were released by the White House today once again reflect the critical need for effective information sharing and analysis by government agencies.  The administration has already identified similar concerns in connection with the failed Christmas Day incident in Detroit.  As I have said in recent weeks, I am concerned that, more than eight years after 9/11, we are not yet adequately analyzing critical information related to threats both domestically and abroad.  The Judiciary Committee will explore these issues further at next week’s hearing with Director Mueller and other witnesses.”
