The Boston bombing means government will expand. I can't wait for the details.  ForeignPolicy.com reports:
Director of National Intelligence James Clapper briefed members of the Senate Intelligence Committee behind closed doors in a pre-scheduled hearing that was supposed to focus on the budget, but Clapper began with an update of the bombings. Ranking Republican Saxby Chambliss (R-GA) emerged from the briefing and said he was told the 22-year old Saudi student who was injured during the bombings and remains in the care of a local hospital was no longer a focus of investigators.[...]

Chambliss did say that security around the country would have to change for large public events, including greater involvement by the federal government.

"This was a soft target. It was not a target that was able to be totally protected," he said. "This particular incident is going to cause the administration and Congress to evaluate our overall security programs around the country, particularly for major events. We can't leave it just to the communities that host these events to provide the security."


  1. In the infamous words of Mr. Emanuel, "Never let a crisis go to waste."

  2. While what occurred in Boston was despicable, everyone rightfully upset about it doesn't give two shits that we drone bomb innocents on a daily basis, and explosions that maim and murder their loved ones are just as terrifying despite their being foreigners.

    To condemn what occurred in Boston is just, but a thinking person is a complete hypocrite if they don't also condemn our constant overseas murders.
