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.

  • Trump immigration protest at LR: Quick and fierce

    It was not even 24 hours ago that Sophia Said, director of the Interfaith Center; City Director Kathy Webb and others decided to organize a protest today of Donald Trump's executive order that has left people from Muslim countries languishing in airports or unable to come to the US at all — people with visas, green cards,a  post-doc graduate student en route to Harvard, Google employees abroad, families. I got the message today before noon; others didn't find out until it was going on. But however folks found out, they turned out in huge numbers, more than thousand men, women and children, on the grounds of the state Capitol to listen to speakers from all faiths and many countries.
