    Indeed. The poor should try shooting up the place and tossing a few bombs.
    John Adams made his career by defending the British soldiers and officer involved in the Boston Massacre. Ironic.

    Been off the site for a while so only catching up on this thread now

    When I heard of the attack it was bad news allright

    - but I don't know anyone from there so...

    Next day through the online grapevine I hear that the daughter of my cousin in the USA was very badly injured in it

    Boy was I angry!!!!

    When they cornered that guy in the boat I would gladly have climbed in and

    ....

    Thankfully as it turns out while badly hurt her injuries were not as bad as 1st feared

    She will recover in time Please God

    From abc.com - Boston's Suspect's Defense Team Gets Major Boost

    http://abcnews.go.com/US/wireStory/b...5#.UX-DHMp49qs

    excerpt
    The defense team representing the Boston Marathon bombing suspect got a major boost Monday with the addition of Judy Clarke, a San Diego lawyer who has won life sentences instead of the death penalty for several high-profile clients, including the Unabomber and the gunman in the rampage that injured former Arizona Rep. Gabrielle Giffords.
    Clarke's appointment was approved Monday by U.S. Magistrate Judge Marianne Bowler.
    The judge denied, at least for now, a request from Miriam Conrad, the public defender of 19-year-old suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, to appoint a second death penalty lawyer, David Bruck, a professor at Washington and Lee University School of Law.

    They didn't fix the economy either....

    After over a decade, the problems with Intel have not been fixed. Instead, we've just created new Intel agencies.

    TIME MAGAZINE: Did U.S. Intelligence Officials Fail to ‘Connect the Dots’ Again? A more dogged pursuit of leads and better intelligence sharing could have prevented the September 11 attacks, and some lawmakers now wonder if the same goes for Boston. The FBI investigated Tamerlan in 2011 after Russia’s initial warning that he’d grown enchanted by Islamic radicalism, but the bureau closed its file on him after finding no “derogatory” information. Even if the FBI had no legal grounds to continue surveilling Tsarnaev without more specific information, however, some critics suggest that local law enforcement could have kept an eye on him.

    In his turn, Ruslan Tsarni, the infamous uncle who was the first relative of the brothers to talk to the press condemning the Boston bombings and the alleged involvement of his nephews, has repeated that his family was not in contact with his brother Aznor’s family. He also pointed at what he called the growing fanaticism of Zubeidat Tsarnaev.

    However, Tsarni’s background reveals that he was formerly employed as a “consultant” for the US Agency for International Development (USAID), which has recently been accused by the Russian government of possible ties to the CIA and other US intelligence services and banned from operating in Russia.

    I learned from my sister today that one of the women who was grievously wounded in the attack, including amputation, was a bridesmaid at her boyfriend's wedding.

    Please pray for her and all the victims still hospitalized.

    The older suspect in the Boston Marathon bombings spoke to his mother about “jihad” in a 2011 phone call secretly recorded by Russian officials, CBS News reported on Saturday.

    The Boston Marathon bombing *suspects’ mother was put on a CIA terrorism database at the same time as her elder son. Russian agents warned them that both Zubeidat Tsarnaeva and 26-year-old Tamerlan were militant Islamists.
    But post-Cold War distrust of the former Soviet Union may have meant officials failed to heed the warning, the US Congress was told yesterday. Andranik Migranyan, the director of the New York-based Institute for Democracy and Cooperation, claimed they “just didn’t pay enough attention”.

    From Boston Globe/Boston.com - Former Chief of Terror-Information Sharing: Tsarnaev Handling 'Looks Like a Mistake'

    http://www.boston.com/news/local/blo...II8J/blog.html

    excerpt
    In September 2011, after a similar request by the Russians to the CIA, the CIA requested that Tsarnaev be placed on a terror watch list, and he was placed on the list the National Counter-Terrorism Center, set up after 9/11 to coordinate the different databaes.

    Tsarnaev’s name also was placed on a separate FBI terrorist screening database, and another one linked to the Department of Homeland Security.

    Homeland Security detected that his travel to Russia in 2012, but his warning status was not high enough to require an follow-up interview by border authorities when he returned. A security official said this week the FBI’s Joint Terrorism Task Force in Boston was notified of his travels, however.

    Meanwhile, Massachusetts officials who oversee anti-terrorism “fusion centers” created to disseminate federal, state, and local information on potential terrorist threats said they were never informed about the FBI’s original three-month investigation.
