Boston Terrorism Alert

by Erin Weiland | Apr 17, 2013

After the recent attacks at the Boston Marathon on April 15, 2013, President Barack Obama stated that the events will in fact be investigated as an ‘act of terror’. "This was a heinous and cowardly act, and given what we now know about what took place, the FBI is investigating it as an act of terrorism. Any time bombs are used to target innocent civilians; it is an act of terror." - President Barack Obama.
