If you will recall, NTSB is independent of FAA, and makes recommendations as they see fit on incidents that are within their purview. These also include rail, highway and pipeline incidents.

FAA is the agency that is responsible for safety of flight. Sometimes those areas of responsibility conflict.

Hersman's statements were a careful summary of what they actually knew to date (which is not all that much), and how they intended to proceed.
