Obama: 'We've Closed An Important Chapter In This Tragedy'
President Obama addresses the apprehension of a suspected bomber, and the tragedies in both Boston and West, Texas. By Michael O'Brien.
The nation has "closed an important chapter" in its response to a terrorist attack on Monday, President Barack Obama said Friday evening at the White House, capping what the president called a "tough week" that captured much of the nation's attention.
After a day of anxious waiting that played out live on national television and in social media, police apprehended Dzhokhar Tsarnaev the second, remaining suspect in Monday's bombing of the Boston Marathon alive following a daylong manhunt that shut down much of the Boston metro area. (snip) The president warned against any rush to judgment. "When a tragedy like this happens
it's important that we do this right. That's why we have investigations. That's why we relentlessly gather the facts. That's why we have courts," he said. "That's why we take care not to rush to judgment -- not about motivations of individuals, certainly not about entire groups of people."

Glad to hear he thinks it is all over....
He is reflexively Moslem.
“The future must not belong to those who slander the prophet of Islam.” - Obama
The War on Terror has been over for some time — I think it ended the day Obama picked up his Nobel Peace Prize.
Time to put the hurt on islamic hate.
Only to face the next “tragedy” in the next chapter of “The Religion of Peace”.
Once again, POTUS Obama leads from behind!!! Once again, he lays the groundwork and words of “not rushing to judgement”, which when recognized for what he really means, is be kind to terrorists, especially my Muslim Brothers. Once again, Obama let these brothers off the hook, when his FBI let one of the brothers get a pass two years ago!!!
Once again, he has, over the past few days, totally neglected the West, Texas explosion, for which the cause is still not known. The authorities in Texas are treating this horrible incident as a crime scene, untill facts prove otherwise. Whether it is “Bengazi” or the Colorado military base massacre, Obama always sides with our enemies. Shucks, even the Democrat Party elected politicians have no use for him. Sad!!! That America is taken in by this total incompetent!!! Impeach this “Lame Duck loser!!!
The turning point was palpable during Rand Paul’s filibuster, but the events of the weeks since then - and now this - tell me Obama’s 15 minutes of mojo are up.
In the parlance of Asia, Obama now has no face. It’s all over except the bitterness and probably some fairly dangerous revenge.
“Obama: ‘We’ve Closed An Important Chapter In This Tragedy’”
What? Has michelle sung and I missed it?
....now it's time for the coverup
In the parlance of Asia, Obama now has no face. Its all over except the bitterness and probably some fairly dangerous revenge.
Obama is going to give Revenge a new meaning. He loathes America and his true colors are going to shine more by the day.
Time to move along. Nothing to see here. I love how he gave credit to Boston for “doing their part”, as if they were assisting him. He went on to reiterate that our stupidity is our strength, and urged us to keep it up.
Obama is a talking dog.
Obama’s one-sided personal education precludes him
from doing anything BUT “rushing to judgment”. He and
his ilk only know conservatism as it is filtered through a
liberal lens. It’s like my liberal friend of 35 years plus who
claims he teaches his high school AP history class objectively.
He asserts that his students can’t tell whether he is liberal or
conservative. That would be laudible except if ask him to
evaluate the LA Times he would swear up and down that
the LAT is a “middle of the road” news source.
After the Marathon that is pure treason. Supporters of the prophet are violent crusaders bent on destroying America and its values, same as they have alwayss been since the seventh century. They persuade by dealing death in the name of their false god.
Funny Hussein obama would have been the first to jump to conclusion and tell it as truth ,were the two White American men. As the 2 belong to his religion of p.iss, he forbids us to have our opinion.
obama go to hell with those 2 ba.stards.
>from an european who is sick and tired of you and european lefties and evil ISLAM.
Sadly, they are mistaken.
The skin color of these terrorist bastards is completely irrelevant, since we already know Muslim terrorists come in all colors, shapes and sizes. Those of us who "jumped to the conclusion" that the perpetrators of this massacre would be Muslims have been vindicated; those who jumped to the conclusion that we were jumping to a conclusion were wrong. Unfortunately for three people in Boston, they were dead wrong.
Good comment, Fred. Right on the money.
He should write that on a Hallmark card and send it to George Zimmerman.
True. but the war on us continues unabated.
>> In other words, don’t rush to judgement about him.
He’s a dick.
It wasn’t an important chapter so much as it speaks volumes of The Religion of Pieces...
Even Franklin D. Roosevelt, for all his big government faults, would have gotten the basic morality of a terrorist attack on the American people right, unlike Obama. He would have been outraged and he would have known where to put the blame. The modern Democrat party is a leftist abomination that has no place in our politics.
I didn’t watch or listen to this evil charlatan.
Just the opposite, 0bumble. It must belong to those who tell the truth about the prophet of Islam and defeat his followers or we are doomed.
Obama, it will belong to those who call out a false prophet for who he is, a false prophet.
I turned it off as soon as the camereas left Boston.
Uh...no I am sorry President Obama this American does not see it that way at all, not at all. Besides the many obvious questions surrounding the radicalization I in fact have many no so obvious questions given these two had more than one bomb in waiting.
First a foremost in my mind right now is the media meme being spewed about the older one traveling abroad for 6 months. Even Fox News pundits are saying he was likely radicalized at that time. I disagree. He was trained and refined at that time, but his radicalization happened here, in the United States. Once near complete, he was sent overseas for training. Where did he get the money to travel? Who sponsored him and his trip?
We are already hearing the foundation being laid for the dysfunctional family meme being laid. From the family seeking asylum to very different views between family members to these young men being disowned by parts of the family. I want to know what the uncle knew and why he disowned them and if it was for terrorist type talk or recognizing the radicalization going on...the uncle needs to spill the beans. It is his duty to the United States and dare I say it is his duty to Islam, if he thinks these young men dishonored them.
And lastly, stop referring to Inspire as some sort of foreign terrorist magazine. Tell the damn truth about it. http://www.cbn.com/cbnnews/us/2010/October/Al-Qaeda-Magazine-Inspires-Homegrown-Terrorism/ It was created by a native American to reach-out to radicalized Americans.
The radicalization is happening here, right here, on American soil all across our nation. No, Mr. President, no the 'chapter is not closed.' We've only seen the introduction.
If Romney were president now every Democrat and most members of the media would be saying this was a failure of his administration to keep Americans safe.
I’d still like to know more about the puke they first thought was involved and why the administration is covering for his moosie ass and are getting him out of the U.S. so quickly so as to not piss off them damn Saudis.
And because a foreign country made an inquiry, I have to believe that he was on a list and they're lying through their teeth.
There you are, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nvtbxnB-RN4
talking dog. no way no how. obama is a parasite (as defined -1. biology - an organism that grows, feeds and sheltered on or in a different organism while contributing nothing to the survival of the host. - 2 a person who habitually takes advantage of the generosity of others without making any useful return 3. a professional dinner guest, esp in ancient Greece 4. a sycophant, a person who coninually eats at the expense of another). Hopefully that clears that concept up once and for all. Do you not agree he is a parasite
Obama’s mother kept the afterbirth and through out the baby with the bathwater. that is why the birth certificate controversy exists yet today - and if fits the true nature of what Obama - HE SERVES NO PURPOSE OTHER THAN TO CONSUME OFF THE HOST AND HAS NO REAL VALUE, SUBSTANCE TO PROVIDE TO THE AMERICAN PEOPLE. (Note I am not yelling pointing in caps the understanding of what the Parasite of the USA POTUS).
On a surprising note, Scott Pelley on CBS referred to this as an “event in the war on terror.” The CBS coverage last night was miles ahead of what I saw on Fox with Greta, by the way.
Scott Pelley on CBS called it “an event in the War on Terror.” Occurring within yards of the Harvard wall, in a place where leftist dogma has virtually expunged traditional Judaeo-Christian influence, this event may come as a kick in the teeth to our elites who comsider themselves transcendent.
What if Bush had said that after 9-11?
Translation from the Prompterese:
"We have to carefully and deliberately construct a coverup to ensure that no Democrat will ever pay a political price when protected classes go on a murderous rampage."
Can you imagine if this sort of thing happened more than 4 years into the Bush administration? There would be demands for hearings, investigations into why the bad guys were not stopped earlier, howling over how they failed to keep Americans safe etc. If any Republican were to dare to say anything now about the current administration’s failures they probably would be condemned and told not to bring partisanship into this.
4 people, including the poor 26 yr old cop who got murdered.
maybe obama would say the dead MIT cop was “acting stupidly”
not that theWon would be rushing to judgement or anything ....
He needed to talk to several of his comrades earlier this week about “rushing to judgment”...
David Axelrod who spoke for Obama while theorizing that it might be related to Patriots Day or tax day...
Chrissy Matthews and the whole MSNBC gang who were frothing at the mouth over the possibility that the bombing was done by Far-Right Bitter Clingers because, after all, it happened in Boston (as in Tea Party) on Patriots Day...
It’s absolutely disgusting. And the cherry on top is that we now are forced to endure The Won admonishing us peasants not to rush to judgment.
They already knew the older brother was dangerous and when they saw his image on video they went straight to him.
