Why did Obama not call the Boston bombings an act of terrorism?

Regardless of who did it, it was a clear act of terrorism. Why did he not call it for what it is?

I listened to Savage a little on the way home from the gym and heard reports that the Boston Police are furious that he (Obama) did not call it terrorism

Also there are reports that they have a Saudi National under lockdown in a hospital and there is a BOLO (Be On the Look Out) for a "dark skinned foreign national" which apparently the media is also not reporting.


No matter how politically correct one may be, you cannot pretend terrorism does not exist and you cannot pretend this was not such an act regardless of whom the perp is.

Laughing because I read your response in the voice of Stan Marsh's older sister Shelley - the one with the mouth gear and lisp.

it was a RESPONSE, dingleberry.

Read the post I was responding to, and get back to me, Shelley.

And for those of you who are about to call me a dumbass for not thinking it was obvious, that's not the point of my questioning. I, too, first thought terrorism. What i'm wondering is what made me automatically think that?
Because motive has not been established no one can say they automatically know
It looks like it took more coordination than one person would accomplish, which could suggest terrorism
But no one knows for sure yet, it could of still just been some nut

Some people on here are just being dumb

This is not correct. Setting off a couple bombs does not automatically mean terrorism, unless you are going to stretch the definition so much that we also include mass shooters.

A bomb is a weapon, just as a gun or a knife are both weapons. What makes something a terrorist act is intent.

If the bomber was a violent psychopath or a crazy person who had no motive other than killing people, then he is not a terrorist.

If the bomber is, hypothetically, some fringe tax protestor, then he's a domestic terrorist.

I truly think this incident and how it is handled will define the Obama presidency.

If this turns out to be a foreign terrorist group and he doesn't go over there and kick their living ass to hell this will not end well for him.
or 3. Murder and Attempted Murder

You seem to have some anger issues.

Also, could you please expand upon your comment on liberalism being a dangerous "religious cult"? Emphasis on religious, please.

Exactly!!

Regardless, the ACT WAS INTENDED TO CAUSE TERROR.

Therefore, no matter who did it, or why, IT IS TERRORISM.

and Shelley and her girlfriends call ME a 'dumbass'??

Bombs set up to detonate in a crowd certainly is the definition of a terrorist attack.

There isn't any question about that.

All that said, if I had to bet on it, its more than likely going to end up being some form of terrorism.

I just don't understand why people have a problem with the people in charge waiting until we know for sure before using a label that might not be accurate.
