So much preparation, how is it that such event was not protected from (not one but two) bombs, placed at the highpoint of such international event? I thought we were moving from reaction to prevention!

U.S. President Barack Obama said the two explosions at the Boston Marathon that killed three people and injured more than 150 others are being investigated by the FBI as “an act of terrorism.”
“Any time bombs are used to target innocent civilians, it is an act of terror,” Obama said in a White House briefing Tuesday morning. “What we don’t yet know, however, is who carried out this attack or why, whether it was planned and executed by a terrorist investigation — foreign or domestic — or was the act of a malevolent individual.”
Investigators appealed to the public Tuesday for amateur video and photos that might yield clues to the Boston Marathon bombing as the chief FBI agent in Boston vowed “we will go to the ends of the Earth” to find whoever carried out the deadly attack.
