Rep. Patrick Meehan (R-PA) on Boston Marathon bombing: 'you really just have to let the facts and evidence tell you the story and follow those logically'

Investigators are tracking down some two-thousand leads this morning in their search for information regarding the Boston Marathon bombings. There are also new reports this morning that Boston-area hospitals have released at least 100 of the 183 people injured in Monday's attack. New details about the lives of the three people killed including a Chinese graduate student who was studying at Boston University are coming out as well. This morning Congressman Patrick Meehan (R-PA) joins “Starting Point.” Meehan serves as the chair of the House Counterterrorism and Intelligence Subcommittee and was briefed about the Boston Marathon bombing on Monday.

Meehan says officials are “now understand what the bomb components may be.” He adds that experts were “able to verify not only that it was a pressure cooker” and that might lead to the next step of finding out what type of pressure cooker.

After that the trail would mean finding out where exactly the pressure cooker came from and “who may have purchased it.”

Meehan says “you really just have to let the facts and evidence tell you the story and follow those logically.”
