President Obama this evening vowed that investigators will apprehend those who set off explosions in Boston today, but he stopped short of calling the bombings an act of terrorism.
“We still do not know who did this or why and people should not jump to conclusions before we have all the facts,” Obama said. “But make no mistake we will get to the bottom of this. And we will find out who did this, we’ll find out why they did this. Any responsible individuals, any responsible groups will feel the full weight of justice.”
Obama said the full resources of the federal government will be committed to the investigation.
