Im so confused. was the Boston explosion a terrorist attack?

im reading conflicting articles, trying to educate myself and stay updated with the latest information but some articles are saying it's a terrorist attack and others are saying it hasn't been confirmed and there are no suspects?

  • The way the Boston Police clarified was to say that multiple explosive devices = terrorist attack (whether domestic or foreign). However, I think that the federal government doesn't immediately classify them as such.

    I'd be interested to know, as well

  • IMO, people were terrorized therefore it is a terrorist attack. Now to find out of its domestic or foreign.

  • "I'm betting domestic terrorism"

    That's my gut feeling, as well

  • It was an act of terror. We just don't know who the responsible parties are yet.

  • Of course it was!!!! It was either domestic terrorism (done by one of our own) or done by who ever..... it can't be anything BUT a terrorist act!!!

  • The news likes to report everything before they get their facts straight. The more sensational it sounds, the better. It probably is domestic terrorism, but we probably won't know anything for a while.
