I had my citizenship interview on 28 February 2012, and was told and was given a form that said that I had passed the exam, and was being recommended for approval.
It also said I would hear from them within 120 days regarding the appointment for the Oath. I wrote to them on June 7 to ask why there was a delay, and they wrote back to say the case was in review and to wait another 60 days, that is only a few days away and still no word from them.
I entered the US in 2006, on a tourist visa, then was married to a citizen and became a permanent resident, went through the conditional process, paid all the fees etc.
Everything is clear and clean. The only thing I worry about is some debt I have and two of them which had judgments against them, but everyone including my husband has debt.
You have 3 options:
1. Be patient
2. Do an infopass at you local USCIS field office
3. Hire an attorney who can file a Naturalization Mandamus in Federal Court
A Federal complaint may be filed in the U.S. District Court if the USCIS has failed to issue a decision on the application for more than 120 days after the date of the interview or examination for naturalization.
The court will review the matter and may take one of several actions. The court is permitted grant the application and naturalize the individual as a citizen. The court is allowed to deny the application if it believes that the individual does not meet the requirements for citizenship. The court may also remand the case to the USCIS with instructions to proceed with the application process.

USCIS conducts background checks and that may be delaying your approval. However, it is only a guess. Besides continuing to make inquiries (telephone or infopass), your only other option would be to sue. Good luck.
