We certainly hope she's correct.

Now that we know that the bombs used in the Boston Marathon tragedy may have been pressure cookers hidden in backpacks, the Secretary of Homeland Security Janet Napolitano is stating that the explosions that ended up killing 3 people and injuring 176 were not part of a broader plot.

Napolitano said:

“Yesterday afternoon, two explosive devices detonated in Boston, Mass., killing three and wounding over 150 people. We continue to keep those affected by this tragedy in our thoughts and prayers, especially the families and loved ones of those lost or injured. I spoke earlier today to Massachusetts Governor Deval Patrick, Boston Mayor Tom Menino, Boston Police Commissioner Ed Davis as well as Members of the Massachusetts Congressional Delegation—including Senators Elizabeth Warren and William Cowan, and Representatives Mike Capuano, Bill Keating, Stephen Lynch, Ed Markey, and John Tierney. I reiterated the Department of Homeland Security’s support to the FBI-led investigation and the Administration’s commitment to bringing whoever committed this act of terror to justice. While there is no current indication to suggest that the events in Boston are indicative of a broader plot, out of an abundance of caution, DHS continues to keep in place enhanced security measures at transportation hubs, utilizing measures both seen and unseen. We continue to urge the American public to remain vigilant and immediately report any signs of suspicious activity to local law enforcement officials.”

Suspects have yet to be found, but considering that authorities are doing everything they can to find the monsters who committed this crime, we're sure they're gonna pay for what they did very soon!!

    This woman is grossly incompetent and has no idea what she's talking about. She's being told what to say by Obama so that we don't "offend" muslims. They have no idea whatsoever at this point if this is a terrorist attack or whether there will be others. She should be fired immediately!!!!!!!!!

    Re: irvinegirl – this is a terrorist attack, but to fire someone for stating facts already in evidence and NOT wanting to show the perps their hand, is what's grossly incompetent. let the govt do it's job. just bc they're not doing or saying what you want them to do and say doesn't make them grossly incompetent. besides, the last few terroristic tragedies we've had have been done by homegrown americans.

    J Napolitano looks dumbfounded every time I see a pic of her or an interview….. CLUELESS!!! She's one of a few disappointments that Obama chose for his Admin.

    For Napolitano to say this was not part of a broader plot, this early on, would seem like a dumb statement
    Almost as dumb as the one yesterday, where Chris Matthews said, that since
    the JFK Library was firebombed, it must be from people who hate Democrats (Republicans)and that they were the ones who set off the bombs
    Of course the library fire was caused by faulty electrical work, one had nothing to do with the other

    PS
    Nothing funnier to see than an old bull, trying to look fem, by add on some ear clips, and beads around her neck,
    She looks like the guy from Mall Cop in drag

    Your headline is misleading and not exactly true. Reading comprehension much??? Try again… "While there is no current indication to suggest that the events in Boston are indicative of a broader plot,…"
    This means that there's no sign of a broader plot YET for now with as much info as they have.

    Anyone else wondering why, after the first major attack on our homeland since 9/11/01 and Napolitano doesnt raise the terror alert? I know they replaced Bush43's color system of yellow/orange/red…but nothing? First they let four Americans die in Bengahzi, unaided - by Obama's strategic choice - and now we're not raising the terror alert as a country after an attack like this? Obama wants all our $ to spend on ever expanding cradle to grave entitlements so he diminishes major security & terror threats so he doesnt have to spend $ on it - it should be an impeachable offense.

    Re: irvinegirl – I have not seen a single story indicating a muslim group was behind this attack. They are usually pretty quick to take credit for their acts. But I may have missed a story so if you have a link, please post it TY.

    This cow should shut her mouth. Those buffoons don't have a clue to who did it, so neither she nor anyone else can address whether or not the "events" were part of a "broader plot."
    .
    Re: irvinegirl – You're absolutely right. This cow should be fired.
    .
    Re: Devynn – We don't KNOW yet if this was a "terrorist" attack, you stupid ass. The cow has no real FACTS; she can't even say they have even a sliver of an idea who did it. For all anyone knows it could've been done by someone who hates runners because he had a tragic run-in with his tricycle when he was three, and his anger finally boiled over. Not every "tragedy" is terrorism, you stupid sheep. If Obama tells you to suck him off because it'll prevent acts of terror, are you dumb enough to believe him? Why yes, I think you are. NO. PROOF. OF. TERRORISM. Asshole.
