Should Toyota's President Testify?

Do you think it is "right" or "justified" that the president of Toyota, Akio Toyoda, must testify before Congress?  I do not know all the details, but to me this seems a bit absurd.  I think Toyota was made aware of an issue.  They acted on this issue by recalling their vehicles to fix the issue.  To me they are acting as a responsible company by taking responsibility.  They should not be reprimanded for being responsible.  No wonder people are afraid to take responsibility.  If you do the right thing you get bashed for it.

Anyone have more detail on why this congressional hearing is taking place?  I need to spend some time looking into it.  My gut says it is not fair.
