April 15, 2013 Boston, Massachusetts, the Boston Marathon, one of the only six world marathon majors and the oldest marathon in the world was interrupted by terrorist bombs exploding at the finish line.

Three people are reported dead and between130 and 144 people have been hurt maimed or seriously injured. Some spectators have lost limbs and early reports said two brothers both have lost their legs.

After promising that the full resources of the government would be brought to bear on the bombings, including the FBI and Homeland Security, Mr. Obama called the terrorist act – a tragedy.

Obama said, "Boston police, firefighters, and first responders as well as the National Guard responded heroically, and continue to do so as we speak. It's a reminder that so many Americans serve and sacrifice on our behalf every single day, without regard to their own safety, in dangerous and difficult circumstances. And we salute all those who assisted in responding so quickly and professionally to this tragedy."

The President was quick to say that "We still do not know who did this or why. And people shouldn't jump to conclusions before we have all the facts." The Presidents cautionary note was ignored by CNN analyst Peter Bergen who said "al-Qaida often uses hydrogen peroxide explosives – while another explosion might signal that a "right-wing extremist" was involved."

Between The presidents use of the word 'tragedy' and Bergen's use of the phrase "right wing extremist," we see a leaning toward excusing any Muslim extremist before anything at all has been determined about who is responsible for planting the bombs in Boston.

In spite of the fact that every major act of terrorism around the world even prior to 9/11 has been planned and conducted by Muslim extremists, it doesn't keep the left and the democratically controlled media from taking their licks against the conservatives, even if it is only a suggestion. Apparently CNN decided not to take the presidents warning to move slowly, very seriously.

Reza Kahlili a journalist and contributor to WND has been warning that Muslim extremists have agreed to attack western targets including sports gatherings. Kahlili has written several articles that explain the Muslim commitment to these attacks and has written a book entitled "A Time to Betray" published by Simon Shuster.

Fox's Bill O'Reilly has been the only news anchor so far to make note of the presidents use of the word 'tragedy' rather than labeling the despicable act as a clear act of terrorism. O'Reilly also said that the president should recognize that the slaughter of children and innocent people is an 'act of war' – not a tragedy.

The historian Tacitus proclaimed that Nero hid himself in a huge house in the center of Rome called the "Golden House" while Rome burned to the ground. He suggested that Nero later diverted the blame for the burning by blaming the Christians who were tortured into confessing to the crime.

Is history repeating itself? As the Commander in Chief emerges from the comfort of the White House to proclaim a horrible terrorist act a mere 'tragedy,' and well watched news sources suggest it was disgruntled Americans who may have been culpable, what's next?

In Egypt and other Muslim nations Christian churches have been bombed. Iran has arrested and tortured Christians including Pastor Saeed Abedini who is an American citizen, but as yet, no one has found Churches or Christian ministries anywhere in the world planning terrorist attacks.

It is here we may want to ask if the mainstream media is living in a fairy tale world and if Barack Obama is the fairy godmother in charge of sugar coated words and delightful explanations.

What is reasonable and respectable at this juncture is prayers and condolences for the victims and families of the act of terror. Wimpy, wobbling wordings from the White House and irresponsible journalism given to politicking this attack – are obscene and irresponsible.
