Either way, it's terrorism on Obama's watch. The apology tour failed and the country is more divided now than it's ever been. Obama is a failure and so are you.
hold up clueless one. Obama didn't vote for that war that everyone is supposed to move past. that inconvenient bit of right wing failure that we should all ignore because it makes it too hard to attack Obama on credible grounds.

talk about an apology tour.

Judge Rules Drunk-Driving Illegal Alien Incompetent To Stand Trial Due To ‘Unique Cultural Background’
Meanwhile, back in Crazy Town: An illegal alien in Massachusetts who was drunk driving when he hit and dragged a Milford, Mass. man to his death has been ruled incompetent to stand trial.
Insane? Nope. Mentally handicapped? Not even close.“Unique cultural background”? You got it.
Judge Janet Kinton-Walker ruled that Nicolas Guaman’s “unique cultural background” prohibits him from understanding the U.S. legal process. The judge also ruled that Guaman lacks the ability to effectively consult with his attorney.(What, they couldn’t find a Spanish-speaking attorney in all of Massachusetts?)
FOX 25 in Boston broke the story and covered it extensively.
“My first reaction yesterday was devastation,” Maloney said.“I just can’t believe that he was found mentally incompetent based on his education level and unique language. However, after being able to think about it overnight, I’m hoping that this will close whatever loopholes that the defense has to try to appeal or get a retrial if we ever get to a trial.”
“I think this does give the defense attorney the opportunity to request the bail for Guaman,” said Maloney.“Up until now, he has not been eligible for bail, so he may be eligible to be released on bail because of this recent decision.”(Gee, the southern border is just as easy to cross heading south, isn’t it?)
When asked whether she believes Guaman does not understand the court process in the United States because of his language barrier, Maloney said:“No, I don’t believe it. In the past, he’s had other run-ins with the law. He’s been in court multiple times on other charges prior to all this in August 2011, and a Spanish interpreter or no interpreter was used for those hearings and he’s always managed just fine.”
Maloney and her family were scheduled to meet with the DA today to discuss the ruling and what the next steps in the case may be. Guaman pleaded guilty [see correction] to second-degree charges and is due back in court in June. Because of the court ruling, he may be eligible for bail.
Without a doubt, defense attorneys across the nation will be watching this case and its outcome very closely. If, somehow, Guaman avoids justice – you can count on this defense coming to a courthouse near you – soon.

Shrapnel bombs blowing off at a marathon is so FAR from anything being "a delusion in peoples minds" it makes one have to wonder-what the hell PLANET some that would even think such a thing, are living on.
Low life, inhumane Dirtbags.
Yea, & this act of terror is a manifestation of said hysteria. People have been truly on edge for a good while now. You can see it on show it's ugly face on this thread everyday bro. It's the division of America that should worry folks more than what happened yesterday. We have people on this thread pointing fingers at political parties as the culprit already,! The professionals still haven't a clue as to who is responsible. Crazy!

One's personal choice to have unprotected sex is about as private as it gets. The government legislating the unintended consequences of sexual behavior is actually an intrusion. It is a private affair and they should stay out of it.

Nice! Get them or not get them, there are plenty more, homegrown and foreign. There are no foolproof solutions for terrorism.
The perpetrators don't care about being killed or punished, only about their mission, to cause chaos, kill and destroy. It's a different world. Americans aren't used to this type of event that is an every day event in other parts of the world.

In the wake of the Boston Marathon terror attack, the punditocracy seems dumbstruck. We have come to expect after these things some good indications about perpetrators: old style terrorists would advertise their actions, and in the major recent cases,— 9/11, London subway, Norway — the killers were discovered quickly. As of this writing we the general public don’t seem to know much.

I agree with Charles Krauthammer that this has an Al Qaeda feel to it, the urban setting, the quest for dramatic photographs. But we don’t know yet. A smaller probability seems to me a right wing domestic terrorist, perhaps on the Breivik model. Smaller still, Shi’ite (Iran sponsored) terror, or some some kind of false flag operation designed to implicate Iran and jumpstart an American-Iran war. But I’m no insider, I just read the blogs and the papers.

Eleven plus years ago, my wife called me from Wall Street to tell me she was okay. Okay about what I wondered. She explained. That afternoon I wrote a blog post for Justin Raimondo’s antiwar.com , saying that Mideast resentment of US policy towards Israel and Palestine was at an all time high, and unless we did something about it, we could expect a lot more of same. David Frum, in an essay attacking antiwar conservatives, wondered whether it was Robert Novak or I who “blamed” Israel first. I think it was pretty much a tie.

At the time, in several subsequent pieces, I would argue that the best way for the United States to protect its own freedoms would be to have as little as possible to do with the Mideast– to cut loose our allies, limit immigration. Trade with that part of the world, but otherwise have as little as possible to do with it. We would of course have to punish the folks who did this to us, but after that, bye bye.

No one took this advice. Instead, we (the United States) have since 9/11 killed, wounded, droned, imprisoned, tortured, made refugees of millions of Muslims. We have fought the endless war, the forever war. Electing Obama barely changed the situation. Whether this has made us any more secure is highly doubtful, but it surely has created more enemies than friends.

To be continued, obviously, when we know more about who perpetrated the Boston atrocity.

You've got it all wrong; the Saudis are the Bush's friends, remember how he allowed them to all round up and leave the country after 9-11? The Bush's were in business with the Bin Ladens, never bothered you eh?
