Boston Marathon Terror Attack

Thoughts and prayers go out to the victims and their families of the bombing attack at the Boston Marathon today.

The Reagan Foundation said it best:
Our thoughts and prayers go out to everyone at the Boston Marathon today and their friends and families. 
As President Reagan once said, "Above all, we must realize that no arsenal or no weapon in the arsenals of the world is so formidable as the will and moral courage of free men and women. It is a weapon our adversaries in today's world do not have. It is a weapon that we as Americans do have. Let that be understood by those who practice terrorism and prey upon their neighbors."
UPDATES:

From the Washington Post:
Boston Police Commissioner Edward Davis on Monday confirmed a third explosion at the John F. Kennedy Presidential Library, following two earlier blasts at the Boston Marathon finish line that killed at least two people.

Let's see... a 20 year old guy, capable of devising, planting and exploding three bombs in a crowded city... yet dumb enough to get burned and captured within two hours. Mmmm. Has the FBI released a surveillance picture of him leaving the Soviet embassy in Mexico City yet?

A lot of perps get caught in their own explosions. If there were multiple devices, and scattered, he must've had someone else working with him.

Oswald was dumb enough to get caught under two hours.
