(Newser) – President Obama will travel to Boston Thursday for a morning service to honor the victims in Boston, reports the Washington Post. The interfaith service is set to take place at 11am at the Cathedral of the Holy Cross in the city. Earlier today, the president called the attack an "act of terror" but said investigators still didn't know who was responsible. Two of three people killed have been identified so far.

Many local and other law enforcement resources will be diverted from actual investigative activity related to this bombing Because of this narcissistic visit and the ensuing tax on local resources and general inconveniences, this president will only hinder the investigation of this terrorist act. Meanwhile, he will think he is the cat's ass just for showing up and acting like he really cares.
