On Monday, two identical pressure-cooker bombs that each had the capacity to hold six liters of liquid blew up seconds and a short distance apart on Boston's Boylston Street. The aftermath was devastating leaving three dead including an 8-year-old boy and 183 hospitalized. The wife of Sen. Angus King (I-ME) was in the marathon stands on Monday. This morning, King who serves as a member of the Intelligence Committee joins a special edition of “Starting Point” to weigh in on the latest regarding the Boston Marathon attack.
Currently officials are “tracing leads all over the place” says King. He adds “that there are thousands of pictures out there right now and it’s probably on somebody’s iPhone and picture of the guy. The person who left the bomb.”
King says “we all have a role to play” in the investigation because a lot of evidence is going to come from phones, security cameras and pieces of the bombs.
How come now one is talking about the fact that the security at the Boston Marathon was so poor. How easy it would have been to have dogs patrolling the area to sniff out bombs and such things. Not just an after thought...isn't this what we are paying law enforcement for to do, their job. Why is it that no one seems to look at the real problem and that is people we pay big money too are not doing their job. After 911 how is this still possible...
If I hear one more excuse of how hard it is to prepare for such things....really!
