Jane Harman calls Boston Marathon bombings an ‘Al-Qaeda-like attack’

Jane Harman calls Boston Marathon bombings an ‘Al-Qaeda-like attack’, The Boston Marathon bombings have not yet been linked to a specific international or home-grown terrorist group, but the well-planned event has been described as an “Al-Qaeda-like attack”

Former congresswoman Jane Harman, currently the President of the Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars told CNN News on April 15 that there is a very real possibility that the Boston Marathon bombings could be Al-Qaeda related. The bombs used in the attack are very similar to bombs used by Al-Qaeda in terrorist attacks across the world.

Hospital, one of the best trauma centers in the country. Other victims have been taken to other area emergency rooms.
