    Obama Says Boston Bombings an Act of Terrorism[W: 77]



    WASHINGTON (AP) — President Barack Obama pronounced the deadly Boston Marathon explosions an act of terrorism on Tuesday as individuals close to the investigation said the two bombs were made of pressure cookers packed with ball bearings and metal shards that cut into the victims.

    Speaking at the White House, Obama said investigators do not know if the attack was carried out by an international or domestic organization, or perhaps by a "malevolent individual." Three people were killed, including an 8 year-old boy, and more than 170 were wounded.

    In his second public statement in less than 24 hours since the explosions, the president said, "Clearly we are at the beginning of our investigation." He urged anyone with information relating to the events to contact authorities.

    Individuals briefed on the probe said the two bombs were made up of pressure cookers, one packed with ball bearings and the other with shards of metal, presumably to inflict maximum injuries. The bombs were placed inside black duffel bags on the ground near the finish line of the annual race, they said, speaking on condition of anonymity because the investigation remains active and they were not authorized to be quoted

    The administration's public assessment began to shift when Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel told Congress in a morning appearance that the attacks were "a cruel act of terror."

    Appearing on television a short while afterward, Obama said the events in Boston were a "heinous cowardly act, and given what we now know about what took place, the FBI is investigating it as an act of terrorism."

    "Any time bombs are used to target innocent civilians it is an act of terror. What we don't yet know, however, is who carried out this attack, or why. Whether it was planned and executed by a terrorist organization, foreign or domestic, or was the act of a malevolent individual. That's what we don't yet know.".....snip~

    "Any time bombs are use to target innocent civilians it is an act of terror..."? I don't know if he wants to be making statements of absolute like that. Perhaps "Any time bombs are used to target innocent civilians, which have not been dropped from a plane or drone, it is an act of terror..."

    I guess he's admitting he's a terrorist. This was his coming out speech.

    Did anybody catch what Hagel was telling Congress this morning? Other than he used the Term Cruel Act of Terror?

    Something they know despite the bombs being crude.....the way it was packed. Which would lead them to first suspect, ME groups. Or one from that region.

    A Former FBI agent thought it could be someone American but radicalized thru Sharia here. A Couple of others have mentioned the same.

    What's that, you say? He didn't?

    Notably absent from his remarks was the word "terror,

    The "innocent civilians" to which you refer are not the targets. The cowards hiding behind them are the targets, and their hostages are "collateral damage."

    The pressure cooker thing is old, it seems like I heard of that in hte 80's. Bet it was in a movie once or something. On further consideration maybe from the Irish terrorist days, but I know today isnt the first time I have heard of it.

    I found this 30 second clip of family guy to be really strange.

    URGENT - Family Guy Shows Boston Marathon, And A Terror Attack - Predictive Programming!! .


    An episode of the popular show Family Guy which was first aired less than a month ago eerily predicted the Boston Marathon bombings, depicting the main character detonating two bombs in addition to winning the marathon by killing the rest of the participants.

    Yeah we knew this shortly after the incident. Thanks, Obama, for telling us what we already knew.

    What we need is some common-sense pressure-cooker control. (pay attention to cooking shows, not one will have a recipe involving a pressure cooker for months).

    ...and write them a strongly worded letter.
