Krauthammer’s Take: Ricin Scare Adds to ‘9/11 Feel’ of Boston Bombing


Charles Krauthammer continued to see similarities between the 9/11 attacks and yesterday’s Boston Marathon bombing, particularly following news that a letter sent to Senator Roger Wicker’s (R., Miss.) office tested positive for Ricin, a highly toxic substance.

“I think the relationship is important, and the reason that there is a 9/11 feel is, as I said last night, the attacks in Boston were the first successful bombing in the United States since 9/11,” he said. “Now, all of a sudden, we have followed on, as happened after 9/11, with a chemical attack and then it has that whole picture. Now again, we have to have a caveat, is there a connection? Nobody knows, but it could be.”
