Duncan Participates in Homeland Security Questioning

 Yesterday, Congressman Jeff Duncan participated in the first of a series of hearings by the House Homeland Security Committee on the Boston marathon bombings. Noting the elder of the two brothers suspected on conducting the bombing had been on a watch list, Duncan said that since 2005 the GAO – Government Accounting Office – has sounded alarms about the lack of terrorist-related information sharing. Duncan said “According to GAO, the federal government has made no substantial progress in developing a system to strengthen the sharing of intelligence, terrorism, law enforcement, and other information among all of its stake holders including federal, state, local, tribal, international, and private sector partners.”
