Krauthammer: Ricin Sent To Senator Creates A "9/11 Feel" To Boston Bombing


CHARLES KRAUTHAMMER: 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. Eleven-and-a-half years.

BRET BAIER: The embassy in Benghazi, obviously is U.S. soil but [you're referring to] inside the United States proper.

KRAUTHAMMER: Inside the United States, in the homeland. And the scenes that we saw, a much smaller scale, of course, but it reminded us of 9/11. The people running in the streets of a great city, the smoke and the chaos, and the, you know, and the screams and the injuries. All of that was -- remember, we've intercepted and stopped a lot of the bombing attacks, all of them until now. So it had that -- the feel. I think that's the reason there was that resonance. Now all of the sudden we have, as happened on 9/11, with a chemical attack and then it has that whole picture. Again, we have to have a caveat. Is there any connection? Nobody knows, but it could be.
