    One reason they are down playing on a middle east suspect right now is obvious ! right after 9/11 a store and gas station operated by south Asian Americans was shot up from the road in my part of the country the mid-west.and the owners were force to close over night .There's not a item above that I did not pick up yesterday on the news.

    Because this wasn't a Sandy Hook the president says don't jump to conclusions. He can't or won't explain what happened in Benghazi and he needs some time now to find a scapegoat for this terrorist attack.
    Benghazi or Boston, what's the difference, the terrorists are telling us they can to this anywhere they choose.
    Yet the streets of his home town of Chicago are just as bloody with the lives of young black kids on a daily basis and his adoring media avoids any mention while he remains silent campaigning, golfing, partying, or on vacation.

    Why are you saying this info has been suppressed when, in fact, it has been reported in the media? What's you point???

    Is this piece somewhat dated in the news cycle? Before I had my dinner this evening I was hearing the FBI was calling it a terrorist attack; they just had no evidence if it was homegrown or foreign terrorism. And on one of my late local newscasts they reported the shrapnel and ball bearings. That limbs have been amputated is old news. I'm not usually one to rush to the defense of the lamestream media; but this list of what we are supposedly not being told is most inaccurate.

    ...i think this report is too quick to point fingers at a possible middle east connection to the bombing...whatever the motivation for this, the time to pick an enemy is after all the facts are in, not before...Thanks!

    "Even if they are not entirely accurate, the public deserves to hear what information the authorities have, with the caveat the information is unconfirmed"

    This is an irresponsible view.


    But, suppose further that the news media says that there are unconfirmed reports that this was a terrorist attack coming from Catholics protesting the HHS Mandate.
    And then, suppose that the reports are later proven to be false.

    Do you really think that a retraction will undo the harm?
