A statement from the White House today commemorating the tragic bomb attack last year, but it conveniently leaves out several facts that we must remember. It begs the question: Why would the Obama regime want to edit the event?
Below is the statement published on Whitehouse.gov
You'll see no mention of ‘terrorism'. There is not even any use of the word ‘bombing'. How about ‘Islam'?
How does Obama's agenda benefit by painting over past events like this? Simple. He does not risk offending his buddies in CAIR. They evidently have more influence than the families of the victims.
A year ago, tragedy struck at the 117th Boston Marathon. Four innocent people were killed that week, and hundreds more were wounded. Today, we remember Krystle Campbell, Lingzi Lu, Martin Richard, and Sean Collier. And we send our thoughts and prayers to those still struggling to recover.
We also know that the most vivid Images from that day were not of smoke and chaos, but of compassion, kindness and strength: A man in a cowboy hat helping a wounded stranger out of harm’s way; runners embracing loved ones, and each other; an EMT carrying a spectator to safety. Today, we recognize the incredible courage and leadership of so many Bostonians in the wake of unspeakable tragedy. And we offer our deepest gratitude to the courageous firefighters, police officers, medical professionals, runners and spectators who, in an instant, displayed the spirit Boston was built on – perseverance, freedom and love.
One year later, we also stand in awe of the men and women who continue to inspire us – learning to stand, walk, dance and run again. With each new step our country is moved by the resilience of a community and a city. And when the sun rises over Boylston Street next Monday – Patriot’s Day – hundreds of thousands will come together to show the world the meaning of Boston Strong as a city chooses to run again.
