Steny Hoyer Not Sure Boston Terror Attack Was Terrorism, Doubts Sequester Will Hamper Investigation

Well, it took nearly a day, but some imbecile has brought up the Obama Sequester in relation to the Boston Marathon bombings. Of course he’s not sure if it’s terrorism just yet. What on earth would he call it otherwise?

Sequestration will not affect law enforcement officials’ ongoing investigation into Monday’s bombing in Boston, House Minority Whip Steny Hoyer, a top Democrat, said Tuesday.

“I doubt that it’s having any impact presently,” Hoyer told reporters when asked about sequestration’s impact. “And the reason for that, this is a priority item and I’m sure they’re shifting what resources are necessary.” He added that even if they have “shorter resources than they otherwise would have had, I’m sure they’re putting all the resources necessary on this effort. Certainly on the federal level; I think the president’s made that pretty clear.”

As part of a budget deal passed in 2011, the federal government was forced to undergo across-the-board budget reductions that began in March.

When asked if he considered the bombing an act of terrorism, Hoyer said he was waiting for more details.

I don’t know the answer. I don’t think anybody else knows,” he said. “I think we’re looking for that. It’s going to be very important to find that out.”

Um, we know it was terrorism and the rest of the planet know’s it’s terrorism. How can he claim nobody knows?
