Boston Attack Threatens Obama's Agenda

"The Boston Marathon terrorist attack allegedly hatched by two brothers from Chechnya is threatening to disrupt President Obama's second-term agenda," The Hill reports.

"Opponents of immigration reform -- the most promising priority of Obama's second term remaining after the defeat of gun control -- are already using the attack to try to slow progress on a bipartisan Senate bill."

"More broadly, the attack is raising questions about how the administration should deal with 19-year-old Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, who was captured Friday after an exhaustive manhunt in Boston, and concerns over whether the FBI was too complacent in letting his older brother Tamerlan Tsarnaev out of its sight after interviewing him in 2011."
