Americans should not decide their opinions about the Boston terror attacks until the government decides its own opinion, President Barack Obama told the nation late Friday night.
“There’s a temptation to latch on to any bit of information, sometimes to jump to conclusions,” Obama warned during his 10:05 p.m. EST speech from the White House.
“But when a tragedy like this happens … it’s important that we do this right,” he claimed.“That’s why we have investigations … That’s why we have courts. And that’s why we take care not to rush to judgment — not about the motivations of these individuals; certainly not about entire groups of people,” Obama insisted...
Presumably, he's chiding such people as Chris Matthews, his own adviser, David Axelrod, (speaking for Obama!) both of who attempted to insinuate that the bomber might be motivated by "Tax Day" (April 15th), NPR, who pointed to April as a big month for "domestic extremist attacks", citing Oklahoma Cit, Waco, Ruby Ridge, Eric Rudolf, etc. Then there's David Sirota, writing for Salon, who, in the absence of any evidence whatsoever, just simply hoped it would be a white domestic attack, because it would be so much more convenient for the narrative.</sarc>
Deeming it "work place violence" rather than terrorism, (maybe he didn't find the commissary coffee up to Arabic standards), by the military brass (or their superiors), the designation has prevented victims and survivors of the attack from receiving military recognition (Purple Hearts, etc).
