President Obama offered a brief statement at the White House  on the Boston Marathon explosions. Highlights:

“We still do not know who did this or why … but make no mistake: We will get to the bottom of (this). We will find out who did this. We will find out why they did this. … Any responsible groups will feel the full weight of justice.”

 “The American people will say a prayer for Boston tonight, and Michelle and I send out deepest thoughts and prayers to the victims,” Obama said.
