Rep. Peter King (R-NY) says Boston Marathon bombings 'investigation is going full speed ahead'

President Obama says those responsible for bombing the Boston Marathon will not escape justice. The president spoke speaking Monday night at the White House where he promised to find out who was responsible for the attack and why. He also reached out to leaders in congress saying this is a time for unity among all Americans. This morning Homeland Security Committee member Rep. Peter King (R-NY) weighs in on the investigation.

King says “the investigation is going full speed ahead” and that officials are currently looking at the components of the bombs. He adds, “That there is somebody apparently being questioned.”

King who is a member of the Intelligence Committee says “there was no intelligence warnings that we know of” but officials are looking back to see if there is something they may have missed.

“I think it’s the type of investigation that can move very quickly” says King. He adds that with the bomb components, camera footage and questioning “we should be getting an answer sooner rather than later.”
