House HS Committee’s Follow-Up Report on Boston Bombings Cites Continuing Info-Sharing Problems

The House Committee on Homeland Security Tuesday released a follow-up report to an earlier committee examination of the lessons learned from the Boston Marathon bombings which concluded that progress in intelligence sharing is still lacking.

The follow-up report stated that, “While the progress made since the Boston Marathon bombing appears to have had an effect on enhancing collaboration on counterterrorism investigations, the committee  remains concerned about the continued reliance of personal relationships for  information sharing in the field.”

“Throughout the committee’s follow-up, state and local law enforcement  articulated their concern about the rate of rotational leadership changes at FBI and Department of Homeland Security (DHS) field offices, and the effect  they could have on cooperation in their region. Several of the committee’s additional recommendations seek to institutionalize structures for facilitating information sharing that can serve as a complement to the personal relationships that exist between organizations.”
