President Obama has acknowledged the Boston Marathon bombing was a terrorist attack, but he and the liberal press still insist the Tsarnaev brothers acted as “lone wolves” and there was no wider conspiracy. They also avoid using the words “Islamic” or “Muslim” when referring to them.

I believe the bombers were Islamic radicals with ties to the larger terrorist community. That means the bombing could have been planned by a larger terrorist cell and the brothers just carried out the last act. Maybe they were not lone wolves.

Obama is sympathetic to Muslim causes, as he does not want to offend his Muslim brothers. He rarely connects the words “Islamic” or “Muslim” with the term “radical terrorist,” but they should be connected. Obama is in denial — the Islamic radical terrorists are growing bolder and more Americans will die.

We have a tool to fight this scenario — profiling. It works; let's use it.
