Boston bombs: Obama lulled America into false confidence over terror threat
"In his State of the Union address to the American people earlier this year, Barack Obama declared that he was "confident" of achieving "our objective of defeating the core of al-Qaeda"...
Mr Obama and his intelligence community know the threat from al-Qaeda affiliates, but have chosen to downplay it to the US public.
Even when that fight does directly touch on American lives, as it did last September when the US ambassador to Libya was murdered in Benghazi by an al-Qaeda linked group, the administration appears at pains to deny the connection.

A job well done by all agencies.
Too bad the rest of the people in washington can't fuction as a team .
Benghazi. Kind of reminds me of the lie Bush and Cheney told us to get 4000 american soldiers killed,35000 wounded and end up costing the tax payer between 4 & 6 trillion dollars.

Bush isn't in office anymore. Congress voted to go to war.
Your comment has nothing to do with the topic.
Why won't the Obama Administration allow the Benghazai survivors to be interviewed?
Why did Obama lie about it? Might have hurt his election if the truth was told? Didn't fit the mantra that Obama had defeated terrorism?
The suvivors STILL haven't been interviewed, even Senators aren't allowed access.
What is Obama hiding now?
What about Fast and Furious?
Why isn't the news posting the numbers of dead American soldiers like they did every day while Bush was in office?

Yes I watched the finest in the world in action. Now I can read about something that has nothing to do with the question, cry and moan about the little world they live in. Great day on my way to Salem!

Of course I watched. We had men and women in harms ways. I even paced the floor a few times, praying that these men and women would be able to go home to their loved ones and walk into their anxious warm embraces.
When the suspect was taken into custody, I let out a long drawn breath. I paused for a moment and thought about the families and victims that endured the pain and suffering these cowards inflicted with their torture on April 15th in the streets of Boston and how the sadness and anger swept across our nation. Acknowledging... that those innocent lives will never be the same again.
I felt the mixed emotions of sadness but yet the sense of relief that this horrific crime had not happened here.
I softly spoke a prayer for our first responders here locally. May they never endure the challenges of the dreadful day. I prayed for their safety in their every day challenges we face here at home.
Then I called my loved ones, if anything, just to hear their voices.

It was in the article I quoted, bug. But you didn't bother to read it, did you? Because you still don't know how to copy and paste, do you?

I'm reading in foriegn news that the brothers and the "person of interest" were double agents and bit the hand that fed them, as a few have done in the past. A lot more here than meets the eye.
