BOSTON–Speaking with a steadfast tone, President Barack Obama said the “evil” bombers will be caught, and shall face justice at the memorial for the victims of Monday’s marathon bombings in Boston.

“Yes, we will find you, and yes, you will face justice,” Obama told a congregation of 2,000 people at the Cathedral of the Holy Cross, three days after two bombs killed three people and injured about 180 in a hail of nails and ball bearings.

“We will find you, we will hold you accountable.

Outside the cathedral, A line of people stretched several city blocks long; about a mile away from the bombing site.

Security was heavy around the church, with dozens of city police officers and bomb-sniffing dogs.

Filipino American memorial attendee Wendell Dingsala said she has confidence the President will deliver on his promise of bringing the perpetrators to justice.

“We know that he cares about what’s happening here and it’s just nice to have somebody that cares about the community of Boston,” said Dingsala.
“We just need to take some time.”

On Wednesday, Obama signed an emergency declaration for the state of Massachusetts and ordered federal aid to supplement the local response to the Boston Marathon bombings.

    An expert on terrorism says the Saudi national who was the original “person of interest” in connection with Monday’s Boston Marathon bombing is going to be deported from the U.S. next week.

    All of us knew as soon as it was announced that he was a Saudi that he would behustled out of the US by his fairy godfather Obama.. Never let it be said that Barry Soetoro Obama doesn’t’ take care of his own Muslim brothers

    HE would have Obama’s protection, and he would be sent BACK to Saudi Arabia. we are seeing AGAIN, what Obama is ALL ABOUT. He’s a Fraud/Liar-even as he spoke in Boston today….what a hypocrit.

    It is so disgusting to hear people that are representatives of this administration open their mouths and just lie. Blatant. Baldfaced. Arrogant. Liars. If Congress will not even investigate the long, long list of insults and illegal activities perpetrated on America by Obama and his administration, then America is doomed.

    The EPA is out of control with its regulatory threats. Obamacare will bankrupt small businesses unless you have already received a waiver. This so-called president is against America. He wants to make it a muslim state and be the ruler.

    So if this guy was on a student visa where was he going to school? What was he doing at the race? Where did he get the burns from? Was he a victim? He has family in a known group of terrorist, what is his affiliation if any? Why is he being deported?

    @Delia – Oh please stop this nonsense. Get all the facts first before you blow your horns. Mahiya ka naman sa mga paratang mong mali mali. How in the world this is Obama’s fault while it was GW Bush terms when we attacked by terrorists. Terrorism in this country has a long history even before Obama’s time. Para kang manok na hinahabol ng palakol at putak ka ng putak. Aba’y eh bakit hindi ka pa bumalik sa pinas kung daing ka ng daing sa buhay dito sa Amerika. Pang gulo ka lang sa mga pinagsasabi mong puro criticisms na wala naman matibay na katotohanan.

    obama slobberers believed justice will be served for the boston marathon victims of terror massacre killed and injured, like believing santa claus really do exist. the only way obama can bring justice is to punish the terrorist in custody upon conviction with death penalty, doubtful will ever happen, since gitmo are housing terrorists, still awaiting court-martial. obama insisted court trials bringing these terrorists to american neighborhoods is fair, majority of americans disagreed with obama. the love ones of thousands killed on 09-11-01 have not been served the justice, they are seeking from the POTUS. this terrorist in custody, a naturalized american citizen, remain to be seen if the victims and the families will get swift justice from obama’s promises.
