UPDATE: Arrest 'imminent' in Boston bombings; or maybe not

Posted By on Wed, Apr 17, 2013 at 12:51 PM

Arrest said to be imminent in Boston bombings, apparently helped by analysis of video. UPDATE: But no arrests have been made and much confusion in all the reporting. Talking Points Memo assembled the video above of the reversal in reporting on CNN.

These are unsettling times. Also today, CNN reports:

A letter to President Obama that was intercepted at an off-site facility has tested positive for ricin, the FBI says.

The envelope, addressed to the White House, was immediately quarantined by U.S. Secret Service personnel and a coordinated investigation with the FBI was initiated.

The FBI said White House operations were not affected.

The letter was intercepted Tuesday, the same day that a letter to U.S. Sen. Roger Wicker was intercepted at an off-site facility and tested positive for ricin.

That's not all: Suspicious package and suspicious man are causing problems at the U.S. Senate office building.
