    Re: Terrorism at the Boston Marathon

    Here's a politician saying we need to delay immigration reform because "the attack might have been perpetrated by an immigrant."

    They're using this tragedy to further their political agenda. Disgusting.

    Yeah, I'm waiting for them to start asking to outlaw homosexuality, because the guy's fb page says "men and women"...

    Re: Terrorism at the Boston Marathon

    What a STRANGE & Ignorant 24hrs for the Democrats....I saw Democrats this morning going on MSNBC TERRIFIED to say terrorist attack...One Rep seem to stumble over his words he was so scared.....It's so stupid...It took them 24hrs waiting on Obama before they felt comfortable calling the HORRIFIC Marathon bombing a terrorist attack...

    It doesnt matter if the Individual(s) is Foreign or Homegrown, Bombings & Shootings are acts of terror and I don't like that the Democrats were afraid to call it that. When we had Bombings under Clinton we called it what it was & the same with Dubya...

    The Benghazi CLOUD is still following Democrats but they better wake the Hell up...2012 is over...Obama got his 2nd term..Now they're on their own...If they know what I know they better use some Damn common sense and Speak up if they want to get re-elected..

    Tough-as-nails, Rocky Balboa wanna-be, Tagg Romney, son of the failed Presidential candidate vulture capitalist Mitt Romney, says the bombers "messed with the wrong people". Tagg also wanted to punch President Obama in the face.

    I agree with you 100% here, it's such a ridiculous farce that suddenly this word has become a political issue - I really wish I knew how or why terrorism and terrorist became such taboo words for left-wing politicans.

    My guess is that it was too closely associated with GWB and 'War Or Terror' - but that's no excuse - I may not have agreed with how loosely defined the term became under Bush but that doesn't mean it should have become defined as 'the word right-wingers use'. It's SO silly.

    However, as was stated in the last page Obama DID indeed use the word today so hopefully that will end the matter.

    One other thing though....

    It should NEVER be the case that a Representative or a party member should be AFRAID to use a word, or AFRAID to express a thought or opinion, JUST because it wasn't yet approved by his President. If they felt it was terrorism they should have the courage to say so.

    Has it become this polarised in the U.S. now that Congressmen and party activists on both sides are incapable of disagreeing with their own President?

    This is why I'll forever be independent.

    Bob..You already know why....Tag probably got a Live interview on MSNBC because they called him like crazy...Think about it The Romney's are the most well known Bostonians right now and who better to speak for the Family than Tag...

    Mitt & Ann are still going to bed crying every night because they lost...LOL...They really need to open the Blinds and come on out the house and do more Fox & The Talk appearances...Stop being Mad & Sad that you lost and put on your BEST face and move on..

    Appears you need to learn a lot more than what a rhetorical question is.

    Lesson 1: How about staying on topic instead of asking snarky questions?

    Obama calls Boston bombing ‘an act of terrorism’

    From the Washington Post:

    President Obama told reporters Tuesday morning that federal authorities are investigating Monday’s bombings at the Boston Marathon “as an act of terrorism,” though they still did not know who perpetrated the attack and what might have been the motive.
    Can we get past that little "wrinkle" within this partisan divide now?


    Let's try to FOCUS people.

    Christ in a Side Car!

    I've haven't been glued to my flat screen, or to "talk radio" since this news broke, and personally I'm quite satisfied that the Adults in charge; First Responders, Law Enforcement, Volunteers, and our President are taking a slow and methodical approach in how this heinous act of violence against innocents is being handled right now.

    Allowing cooler heads to prevail is always the best approach.

    Getting all worked up and hysterical just makes the entire situation worse for everyone.

    Re: Terrorism at the Boston Marathon

    Reckon I used to work in Copley Square at my old job so seeing images of the next street over, literally a block [right near the outbound Copley Square T stop. I did get a chuckle at newscasters pronouncing it "co-plea" instead of "cop-lee". Hell, many of them had trouble pronouncing "boils-tin" Street. Oh Boston vernacular!] from there so is a bit traumatizing. I work in Cambridge in Kendall Square now.

    The one thing Obama said in his speech last night that was very true is that Bostonians are a resilient bunch of people. The English may joke about the wartime slogan: "keep calm and carry on." but real Bostonians personify this. We will pay our respects where they are due and then get on with life while the rest of the nation and world can get caught up in a maudlin frenzy. You may call it insensitive but I call it stoicism. It really is a hallmark personality trait of New Englanders. A hard winter like this past one will suck any optimism right out of you.

    Re: Terrorism at the Boston Marathon

    I am really questioning at this point if it was a foreign attack. My instinct is telling me this may be an instance of domestic terrorism completely unrelated to any foreign groups or hostile governments (such as Iran or North Korea).

    I know they reportedly had a Saudi person of interest in custody and most likely this was the person who's home they searched.

    But perhaps this was some wacky right-winger who is upset about the direction of the country and the (unlikely) prospect of having their guns taken away, given the crackdown on gun laws.

    Or, perhaps it was completely non-political, such as some nut who simply has a fascination with bombs and wanted to hurt people. Reports are that the bombs themselves were somewhat amateurish, although they obviously killed three and injured many. But it could have been a lot worse with a more sophisticated bomb.

    This is leading me to believe that perhaps this was an amateur, domestic person or group that just had some ax to grind in their delusional state of mind.

    There is evidence that it is not. They have some small debris that indicates these were pressure-cooker bombs. Such devices were used in Pakistan and Mumbai, and similar devices were also meant to be used in the failed bombing of Times Square in 2010, for which a Pakistani man was convicted. Given that info, it would not be inconceivable that this was carried out by Pakistani terrorists.

    One of the three devices that was to be used in an attempted bomb attack in Times Square in 2010 was a pressure cooker. Earlier that year, terrorists used a pressure cooker bomb in an attack in Pakistan. And in 2006, more than 130 people were killed on the transit system of Mumbai, India, when pressure cookers loaded with explosives were placed on trains.

    If that is the case, I find it rather peculiar that nobody has taken responsibility yet, though. Normally, terrorist groups can't wait to take credit for an incident, whether it was successful or not.

    Well, it may not have been a group. The foiled Times Square bombing was planned by an individual. If this one was as well, the person would likely still be here and not able to take responsibility.

    While serving in the United States Coast Guard, the powers that be decided that this Texas Boy should never serve in a position anywhere near the South, or the Gulf Coast of the United States of America.

    I was stationed at State Pier #1 in New Bedford, MA with extended deployments to Boston, and Governor's Island, NYC.

    (My residence as at Otis ANG, near Falmouth!)

    The first lesson that I learned about New England is, "New Englandas ah a tuff lott ta git to know, but once ya git to know'em, ya gotta friend fa life!"

    And to this day I still do.

    If it were up them they'd be settling this score (sounds like whore) right now!

    Re: Terrorism at the Boston Marathon

    I didn't even know the marathon was happening yesterday until the bombings occurred. Before, none of the media could have cared less about Boston or its marathon; it was getting zero coverage. Then when the tragedy occurred, they were all suddenly like "Oh, we love Boston so much" and "we are such big fans of the marathon". In reality, they just love the big ratings that a tragedy like this draws with 24/7 coverage. Sick. They remind me of that annoying guy who shows up at a funeral claiming to have been a good friend of the deceased, when it reality he hardly knew him.

    Martin Richard died in Boston - he was 8 years old - a third grader - according to neighbors - he loved to play baseball - and he loved to ride his bike

    His mom is critically injured

    His sister - 6 years old - lost her leg in the blast

    The father and another son were unhurt

    The family is from Dorchester

    When they find the perpetrator(s) it is my hope that they pay with their lives

    That may have been a modus operandi mostly specific to terrorists from that part of the world at that time, but terrorists the world over certainly know about making bombs with pressure cookers by now. Instructions are easy to find on the internet (especially, as I understand, on the "Deep Web" where I've never been and am afraid to go, because I assume there are a LOT of viruses there as well), and this kind of bomb is awfully easy to make. I'm not even sure that this type of bomb even IMPLIES that its maker is probably from southwest Asia anymore.

    They DO love terrorism, because it always gives they a bogeyman out there to scare the Bejeebers out of all of us, so that they can put in laws that surveil everything that we do. It doesn't help that, once such laws get put into place, BOTH major political parties will always make sure that it stays in force.

    Actually, thinking back over the decades, I'm not sure I can remember ANY year when I didn't at least hear *something* about the Boston Marathon. I think generally it gets the amount of coverage I would ordinarily EXPECT such a thing to get.

    After all, generally it is ENTIRELY politically neutral, and it has absolutely no effect at all on anybody's lifestyle or standard of living (except, perhaps, the fastest in the race, and those who are running to raise money for charity). In today's media atmosphere, where everything either has to be shrill political diatribe, disasters, or stories about nice fluffy kitties or silly dog behaviour, I should probably be surprised that I ever hear anything about the Boston Marathon AT ALL. (Of course, this year, it WAS indeed a disaster.)

    Actually many reports I have read indicate that this does not bear the hallmarks of an al quaida or foreign terror group. It was devastating but unsophisticated by their standards. They would have killed most of wounded not simply wounded them. The fouc is now on a neighbor, family member friend of people in the area. The signs indicate he was not in contact with outside intelligence and that is another reason our normal detection means, electronically, did not give warning. You cannot intercept thoughts (yet) so a lone perp is likely.

    We shall see as the investigation plays out.

    His mom is critically injured

    His sister - 6 years old - lost her leg in the blast

    The father and another son were unhurt

    The family is from Dorchester

    When they find the perpetrator(s) it is my hope that they pay with their lives

    Every death and injury from such a senseless carnage such as this is heartbreaking, but when the victims are so young, it makes it even more devastating. Martin took part in a school project to show support for the families of the Newtown massacre, and Newtown families were in attendance as the last mile of the Marathon was dedicated to the memory of those killed in Newtown. Whoever did this deserves at the very least to never see the outside of a maximum security facility for the rest of their lives. ..if they got the death penalty, no tears would be shed by me.

    Are you, Bob and Rolyo too dense to understand. It appear so and you only want to make snippy, critical comebacks instead of talking about the issue.

    Mr. Obama doesn't like to use the work terrorism because it casts a negative light on his administration's ability to fright against terrorism.

    Some history -- the killings at Ft. Hood are not classified as terrorism -- I believe they call it 'workplace violence'. Bengazhi was not called a terror attack either -- sounds too rough. The phase that is taboo in the Obama Administration is 'radical Muslim terrorism'.

    Ironically, I noticed someone on Sean Hannity's forum make a post about getting "a feeling" and asking if others have that feeling at the potential of a war breaking out in Korea.

    Ahhhhh, Thank you Jack....you see I knew that you and all the other right wing Obama haters are just waiting in the wings on this, no matter how well you play the over the top sympathy schtick in the first 24 hours after any tragedy like this. You are desperate to have everything classified as terrorism so that it will cast a pall on the ability of the president to personally protect every American from the possibility of politically motivated violence.

    And by the way, when you say to keep politics out of an event like this, then y'all can't be fussing about how the tragedy is described since word choice is apparently only political. As well, if this was a politically motivated attack by the bomber, then evertyhing about it is political. It is the way these things work.

    Jack, why do you repeat the has-run Romney's lies, when they were PUBLICLY debunked on one of the debate by the moderator? Benghazi WAS called a terrorist attack. Once it was clear that it was such.

    As usual, you're the one who needs to politicize, polarize, divide. Then cry victim.

    This AM MSNBC was showing pictures of the site. It showed a backpack right next to a blue mail box the PO has. There were dozens of people right behind the bomb. I'm surprised more weren't killed. No link yet.

    not as far as I'm aware.

    there's been at least one "person of interest" and it sounds like his home got searched, but I don't think any arrests have been made yet.

    Exactly, not just politicians though a good chunk of Americans thought Muslim Arab Terrorist were responsible for these before any facts were in. Still to this day a good many conspiracy crazies think the American jet out of JFK was terrorist. Facts be damned. These events though all had domestic origins.

    1) the Beltway sniper in Oct 2002 resulting in the deaths of 10 with 3 more critically wounded.
    2) The Anthrax attack directly after 9-11 killing 5, infecting 17 others
    3) American Airlines Flight 587 on Nov, 12, 2001 killing all 260 on board and 5 on the ground

    Edit: No doubt these are all examples of terrorist, but not classified. It would be terrifying to be in a airline accident to. President Obama was no where around to "not" use the word terrorist on these events.

    Simply horrible. My thoughts and prayers are with those who have lost loved ones and to those suffering deeply from physical and emotional scars from this senseless and tragic bombing. The bombing is senseless beyond simple words of condolence.
