    comment from France : this politician is committing the basic instinctive (and childish) mistake. Denying evidence. Same with de Blasio mental dysfunction about “intentional” blast .. oh really ? you mean an explosive may be fit by humans, and not auto-creating destructive material kinda Terminator stuff ? so the blast may be intentional ? but of course not connected with terrorism (ah ah) .. well what do you call terrorism, then, Mayor, if exploding blasts in public places is not ? especially when a second device is found minutes after? Those politicians considers their citizens as dummies. Or they themselves are.

    1. France? You mean the chicken dance country! We don’t need advise from the French when it comes to security.
