If your agency's most important projects goes south, it is both expected and appropriate that you'll get hauled in front of Congressional committee to explain what happened.

you have to spend some of your time explaining the problem to your bosses so that they: i) can find out how big the problem is; and ii) figure out if you should be the one fixing it or not.

If the goal of the inquisition is to figure out how to fix the problems, then it's a productive use of taxpayer time and money.

If the goal of the inquisition is merely political grandstanding, and another attempt to hinder and/or end the program, then it's a waste of taxpayers time and money.

It sounds like the latter to me.
