Obama on Boston Bombing Suspects: 'They Failed' (Video)

President Barack Obama addressed the country in a press conference at The White House soon after the second Boston Marathon bombing suspect Dzhokhar A. Tsarnaev was captured alive on Friday night (April 19) in Watertown, Mass.

“Tonight our nation is in debt to the people of Boston and to the people of Massachusetts after a vicious attack on their city,” Obama said. “Bostonians responded with resolve and determination. We’ve closed an important chapter in this tragedy.”

“There are still many unanswered questions,” he continued. “How did young men who grew up and studied here as part of our communities and country resort to such violence? The familes of those killed so senselessly deserve answers.”
