Speaker John A. Boehner expressed his condolences to the families of two al-Qaida hostages killed in a January strike at his weekly news conference Thursday, saying the House would wait for the White House review of the incident before taking additional oversight measures. “I’m sure that the House Armed Services Committee and or the Intelligence Committee will look at this, but my guess is we’ll wait for to see what the review board develops and then take a look at that, to make sure that this kind of occurrence does not happen again while we work to protect American lives,” Boehner said.
