Obama Calls Boston Bombing an 'Act of Terrorism' (Video)

President Barack Obama has spoken out for the second time since the tragic Boston Marathon Attacks to call the senseless incident an “act of terrorism” during a press conference on Tuesday (April 16) in Washington, D.C.

“This was a heinous and cowardly act, and given what we know about what took place, the F.B.I. is investigating it as an act of terrorism,” Obama said. “Anytime 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,” the president said, “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.”

So sad… and the Sandy Hook survivors were there being honored at the marathon… and having to witness the shooting and then this… Horrible :( I hope they find who did this and make them see justice for their crime.

He’s not the terrorist, he’s just a puppet in the hands of the real terrorists.

An act of terrorism? Are you kidding me?? The US is so ridiculous, always calling any kind of crime an act of terrorism. It was a horrible tragedy, it had nothing to do with terrorism.

Lying a*s*shole. He knows. It’s his jihadi friends as usual.

@Sarah:

Bet it’s gonna turn out you don’t know what the f*u*c*k you’re talking about. Bet???

@offtheproperty:

Exactly. 95% of terrorist attacks worldwide are caused by Islamic jihadis but the left media trots out Timothy McVeigh every single time. Every. single. time.

Least he didn’t go the usual route when a bomb goes off and automatically blames the Middle East.

@Keiko: Exactly. The subversive media equates our periodic pharma-psychos with a “religion” that teaches them to be suicide bombers and mutilate every daughter unfortunate enough to be born into the cultural concentration camp called Islam. And Obama’s telling all the same evil lies from the White House.
All for the purpose of destroying our great country and people.
