Obama and the Marathon Bombing

Barack Hussein Obama held a press conference regarding the Marathon Bombing and he said some interesting things. Obama said we must not jump to conclusions regarding the motivation of the two bombers [especially since the two bombers were Muslim jihadists and not “right wing” Tea Party Conservatives]. Ironically, Obama said the same thing about not jumping to conclusions regarding the Fort Hood Muslim jihadist Nidal Hasan, who committed that violent “act of workplace violence,” where Hasan massacred 13 unarmed soldiers and wounded many more with two hand guns while shouting “Allah Akbar.”

Obama said [no stone will be left unturned] finding out the reason for the bombing and if there were any other people involved, because the victims of this crime should deserve to know exactly what happened. Unfortunately, Obama does not feel the same way in regards to Benghazi. Maybe it is because he was derelict in his duty regarding Benghazi as Commander in Chief and he should be impeached over it.

Obama also said the terrorists did not win. What? I disagree. In a terrorist act the goal is to kill and injure as many people as possible to create fear and panic among the masses. Another goal is to disrupt the lives of the people. So what happened in this incident? The bombs went off killing three and wounding many others creating fear among the people. Transportation was halted; the city was in “lockdown” [declared Marshall Law] and two major sporting events (Boston Red Sox baseball game and the Boston Bruins hockey game) were canceled disrupting the lives of the people. I would say these terrorists did accomplish the goals of a terrorist act. I question the "leadership" in Boston and their decision to cancel the sporting events, because I fear by doing so only emboldens future terrorists.
