Put on AP and they won't say why?

I am from the Philippines, I came to Germany through command sponsorship because my husband is in the army. Before I came here he already filed a visa petition for me. I got here Nov. 2009. February 2010 we applied for a tourist visa while my case is still pending because we needed to go to the US for awhile and I got approved but the passport never arrived, it got lost in the mail. Neither the consulate nor the Deutsche Post took responsibility, so basically we suck it up and burdened all the expenses on getting a new one plus the dime wasted on applying for the toursit visa My case was completed and ready for further processing ar NVC April of 2010 but we are still dealing with my lost passport. Finally got a new one August 2010 so we continued with our visa prpocessing Sept 2010. My case was originally in the Philippines since I was still there while my husband filed the petition and we had it transfered here in Frankfurt. I finally had my interview at the USC frankfurt last February 9, 2011. Everything went smoothly, staff was so nice and friendly, no hassle, it even felt like it wasn't an interview, more of a formality. They the consular officer said, everything seems to be in there and I should expect my visa and other documents in the 2 weeks.

2 weeks had passed and no visa in the mail. So I contacted the consulate, worried that my documents is lost in the mail again. Tried calling first but didn't get anyone to pick up so I emailed them. Got a reply that says, your case is sent electronically to Washington for further administrative processing and they are still waiting for a reply before they issue my visa. I keep thinking why I am put on AP...all our documents are there, my husband and I have been together for almost 7 yrs, been married for 3 yrs. We have 2 daughters ( 4 yrs old and 6 months) I been living in a US military base for more than a year now. No criminal records whatsoever. My husband called the the consulate and DOS, both didn't tell him why I was put on AP. I am at a lost here. I don't even know how long I have to wait AGAIN! My husband is living for school to the US in April and we really want to be in the US and meet his family.

Any thoughts on this....anyone?

Sorry for the long post :-)

I've read some of the posts regarding AP and my case just seemed so unlikely to be put on 1. If it's name check or security check, I've been living inside an army base for crying out loud which is considered a US soil This is so frustrating for us, we just want this visa processing thing to end!
