and lets not forget that this enormous effort was partly undertaken because the us government wants to draw away attention from the fact that the marathon security and police acted carelessly and foolishly to let this happen in the first place.
but most importantly it shows that despite all of the usas security measures and their outrageous terrorist prevention system they are still very, very vulnerable. two kids that supposedly acted on their own can make the whole nation hold their breath for several days. this is an invitation for future terrorists and personally i'll try to avoid visiting the us for the next few months. there are enough nutcases over there, and this excessive coverage is just encouraging them. stupid media, stupid world.
