Obama agenda: Please come to Boston...

“President Obama is planning to travel to Boston on Thursday morning to attend an interfaith service dedicated to those who were wounded or killed in Monday’s bombing near the finish line of the Boston Marathon,” The Boston Globe writes. “Obama will speak at the interfaith service, which is scheduled to take place at the Cathedral of the Holy Cross at 11 a.m.”

“The threat from multiple homemade bombs detonated nearly simultaneously to kill or maim as many civilians as possible has been a hallmark of militant groups in recent years from Iraq to Israel and Afghanistan and Russia,” the Boston Globe adds. “But until Monday at the Boston Marathon finish line in Copley Square, such street-level bombings targeting sidewalk or marketplace crowds had not taken place on American soil. US law enforcement and intelligence officials across the country and overseas, scrambling to identify the source of the explosives, are now worried that the marathon sidewalk bombing could mark a new chapter in the struggle to secure the American homeland.”
