Obama Treasury Department Will Not Certify That Boston Marathon Bombing Was a Terror Attack

Despite its seeming incompetence, the Obama Regime has settled on an ingenious strategy for protecting the American homeland from terror attacks. It simply refuses to acknowledge that terror attacks are terror attacks. ISIS wannabe Nidal Hasan’s shooting spree at Fort Hood was workplace violence, not Islamic terror. Now it appears that the Boston Marathon bombing wasn’t terror either:

In the wake of the 9/11 attacks, Congress passed the Terrorism Risk Insurance Act, which created federally-backed insurance in cases of damage due to terrorism. Some Boston businesses were among those that bought the insurance. …

But as of March 2014, many of those that held terrorism insurance had their claims denied. Why? The Secretary of the Treasury Jack Lew has not certified the attacks as an act of terrorism for these insurance purposes, a requirement under the wording of the Terrorism Risk Insurance Act (TRIA).

Evidently Religion of Peaceniks need to cause at least $100 million in aggregate damages for their outreach initiatives to count as terror attacks worthy of compensation.

That’s what you get for counting on the government.

But I’m guessing that if a white guy sets off a cherry bomb near an abortion clinic, that will still count as terror.
