    A good point by Dem McCaskill


    In questioning Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano, Sen. Claire McCaskill (D-Mo.) drew a parallel between the explosions, injuries, and deaths at the Boston Marathon with the gunfire massacre at the Sandy Hook Elementary School, and asked why it also is not designated as an act of terror.

    McCaskill also hesitated calling what happened in Boston an act of terror, saying in part, “We are so quick to call Boston terror.”

    At a hearing of the Senate Committee on Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs on Wednesday, McCaskill said, “But I’m a former prosecutor and I’ve got a question that is just—I can’t keep it from coming out. Based on the evidence at this point, is there any difference between Sandy Hook and Boston other than the choice of weapon?”
