PS on Boston

A PS to yesterday's post about the Boston bombs and how the killing and maiming of innocent people is seen differently depending on where the murderer comes from.

Reuters has put out this claim in a new report that the bomber may have been caught on camera:

The explosions at the Boston Marathon finish line killed three people and injured 176 others in the worst attack on U.S. soil since September 11, 2001.

The worst attack? There have been plenty of worse attacks on US soil since 9/11. Mass murder in schools and cinemas for example.

But it seems that as they were carried out by Americans with guns they somehow don't count.

I don't get it.

Here's the Reuters report in full.
