A year later, little government response to Boston bombing as politics of terrorism shift

Reported by: Associated Press
Reported: Thursday, April 17, 2014 3:05 AM EDT

There's little evidence of any lasting impact on the political world a year after the terrorist bombings at the Boston Marathon.

The attack a year ago Tuesday has been little more than an afterthought in subsequent elections across the country. State and federal officials have enacted virtually no policy changes in response to the bombings that killed three people and wounded more than 260. And federal funding that helps cities prepare for terrorism may be cut.

The politics of terrorism have changed dramatically since the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks on New York and Washington.

Polls suggest voters have little appetite for a renewed focus on national security after a decade of anti-terrorism efforts — plus wars in Afghanistan and Iraq — that consumed tremendous public resources.
