Chairman: FBI Has ‘Chosen to Obstruct’ Oversight - Yahoo! News: "“It is unfortunate that the FBI has chosen to obstruct this committee’s oversight jurisdiction of events leading up to a terrorist attack,” he said. “This committee has specific questions related to our investigation of the Boston Marathon bombings, and the FBI refuses to answer those.”"
