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.

Maybe it was a kinetic man-caused disaster.

    I guess they were just sports injuries. Good thing we’re takin’ care of the bombers’ sisters though. A couple of criminal baby mommas with a family history of welfare siphoning.

    Why would they call the Boston “Bombing” a terrorist attack, there’s enough things that don’t add up and looks more like the government staged the bombing.

  37. Abigsoxfan says:

    There’s a mistake in the article above. I’m in the insurance business so know this to be true. If not purchased, insurance against certified terrorist acts are excluded. If purchased then all acts, certified or not are covered. If an act is deemed not to be a terrorist act it is covered by insurance policies whether the terrorism coverage is purchased or not. So the statement above that those who purchased terrorism coverage are not covered until it’s been deemed a terrorist act is patently false. If it’s not a terrorist act, you’re covered whether you bought the coverage or not. That all being said it was obviously a terrorist act and those who chose not to buy the coverage shouldn’t be covered, but since it hasn’t been certified as a terrorist act, they will be.

    I may be mistaken, but would the certification pave the way for federal aid, much like FEMA does for declared natural disasters? At any rate, this is political correctness and denial right up to our doorsteps. I want to see our government proactively protect citizens against real outside threats; and institute more rigid immigration standards, not free ticket and free benefits package at our detriment.

    That would not hold true if the insurance was written specifically to cover terror acts. You’re speaking of comprehensive insurance.

    Jack Lew is most likely doing just what his master “Obama” has told him to do. After all Obama calls the mass murder of soldiers in this country “work place violence”. He does not want to upset his fellow Muslims by calling their killing sprees terrorist attacks.
