Phew. We found some. Weapons of mass destruction. Right in Boston. Who would have thought it? But there they were. I know this because Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, the younger of the two brothers alleged to have committed the Boston marathon bombings, was charged, April 15, with, inter alia:
“Unlawfully using and conspiring to use a weapon of mass destruction (namely, an improvised explosive device) against person and property within the United States used in interstate and foreign commerce and in an activity that affects interstate and foreign commerce, which offense and its results affected interstate and foreign commerce (including but not limited to, the Boston Marathon, private businesses in Eastern Massachusetts, and the City of Boston itself), resulting in death, in violation of 18 U.S. C. § 2332a.”
Who would have thought that one would witness the use of weapons of mass destruction (WMD) in Boston?
