Gregory: congratulations Governor

Patrick: I accept your congrats on behalf
of our excellent meticulous law enforcement officers

Gregory: has the threat passed?

Patrick: we think so but we are
looking at all possible leads

Gregory: did the younger suspect
try to commit suicide?

Patrick: I don't know David

Gregory: can he talk?

Patrick: well when he can we
will talk to him Fluffy

Gregory: he was on the FBI's radar

Patrick: it was the older brother actually

Gregory: whatever

Patrick: look we need to be careful
and methodical and not rush into anything

Gregory: screw that – say something
provocative about Dzokhar

Patrick: he was acting like a regular
student even after the bombing
which is odd to say the least

Gregory: is there a video showing
them planting the bomb?

Patrick: yes and they did not even react
when the first bomb went off which is pretty chilling

Gregory: should the Constitution apply
to him or should we repeal the Constitution
and call him an enemy combatant?

Patrick: Um... let's keep the Constitution

Gregory: if you say so

Patrick: we had seamless cooperation
with local and federal law enforcement

Gregory: how has American completely
changed because of this?

Patrick: I heard you were a moron

Gregory: but America will never be the same!

Patrick: we need civic celebrations as people

Gregory: but I'm scared

Patrick: it's very affirming that people
came together instead of turning on each
and creating a police state like you want to do

Gregory: go away Deval
[ break ]

Gregory: scare me Pete!

Williams: what was Tameralane doing in Russia?
Who did he meet with? Where did he learn
how to build these pressure cooker bombs?

Gregory: Dzokhar was a star student and
Tamerlan was good boxer with a wife 
and child on the other hand he posted 
some scary YouTube videos so he should 
probably have been arrested

Rogers: Russia called us and told us
he was a radical – the FBI asked Russia
for more help and they refused

Gregory: those fiendish Russians

Rogers: then he comes back from Russia
and he's a radical mosque-going wackjob

Gregory: his uncle says when Tameralan
came back from Russia he was a radical nut
with all kinds of insane interests like
extreme religion and the Kardshians

Leiter: this happens all the time –
like that guy who got an MBA and committed
insider trading and that other guy with an
MBA who tried to bomb Times Square

Chertoff: Obama dropped the ball!

Leiter: there are lots of radicals – 
they're not all terrorists
some have shows on Fox News

Gregory: did the FBI miss something here?

Rogers: I doubt it – what are they supposed to do?
arrest the guy for sounding crazy –
they'd have to arrest half of Congress

Gregory: unfortunately Dzokhar is an American
should his Constitutional rights be revoked?

Williams: no that's against the law Fluffy

Gregory: that is so sad

Williams: Lindsay Graham wants him
treated as enemy combatant

Gregory: excellent!

Williams: that won't happen

Gregory: Roger you're a Republican -
should Dzokhar be treated as a citizen which
he is or should we suspend all his rights?

Rogers: no he's an American citizen Fluffy!

Gregory: dammit

Rogers: but Mirandizing is a horrible
idea and in any case we don't need
a confession we need to know if
there are bombs hidden somewhere

Gregory: did this incident with a
teenager change America forever?

Chertoff: maybe

Gregory: look at all these failed 
terror attempts on America – 
but finally the face of terror has changed 
and we can have the police state news 
anchors have always dreamed of

Chertoff: cripes calm down Fluffy!

Gregory: I can't! I need news!

Chertoff: get a goddamn grip on yourself –
this doesn't change anything!

Gregory: we have fallen into
complacency haven't we?

Durbin: not at all

Gregory: I'm going to cry and hold my
breath until one of you agree America has changed

Durbin: oh do shut up Fluffy

Gregory: the FBI missed
something didn't they?

Durbin: I doubt it – and don't forget
we live in a free and open society Fluffy

Gregory: I hear you saying we need
strengthened law enforcement

Durbin: sweet jesus you're a moron

Gregory: what new laws do we need?

Gregory: immigration reform would
make us safer

Gregory: Chuck Grassley says Boston
means we should not let immigrants be legal

Durbin: that's stupid

Gregory: should we call Dzokhar an
enemey combatant and revoke the Constitution?

Durbin: no and Liz Cheney is a
paranoid un-american idiot

[ break ]

Gregory: hi panelists – what a week!

Goodwin: we love Patriot's day –
history and baseball and the marathon -
but then everyone came together

Gregory: awesome but I'm still scared

Goodwin: we belong to our families
and our hometowns

Gregory: forget the strength –
hasn't this changed America forever?

Brokaw: Islamic rage is more dangerous than ever!

Gregory: finally someone agrees with me!

Brokaw: on the other hand there
is no privacy left in America

Gregory: Tom is right about Islamic
rage and how America has changed forever

Goldberg: we live in the Era of
the Suspicious Package

Gregory: thank you!

Goldberg: on the other hand we 
should not overreact

Noonan: I was in New York City and there
men in camouflage and police dogs

Audience: so like every other day

Noonan: cell phone cameras! community! drink!

Gregory: we will never ever feel safe again!

Goodwin: holy fucking shit will you
calm the fuck down Fluffy

Gregory: I can't – I'm terrified

Goodwin: people came together
and they're not afraid

Noonan: radiological... dirty bomb
do you know what I mean?

Gregory: Tom give her a refill

Goldberg: instead of being terrified
David - what about being defiant!

Goodwin: like the Londoner were during Blitz

Noonan: Blitz! Who's with me?!

Brokaw: why do young men feel so
alienated from our Sunday talk shows?

Noonan: good question tommy

Brokaw: young people don't like
being bombed by drones from above

Goldberg: all young men are alienated –
but the Internet provides an outlet for that rage

Brokaw: true - ever seen the YouTube 
comments section?

Goldberg: the solution for angry
young men must come from Islam

Gregory: Washington must step up!
We must track homegrown terror!
We must revoke the Constitution!

Brokaw: don't forget to blame violent video games

Gregory: good point Tom

Brokaw: we are the most advanced country
in the history and yet our movie theatres
can still get shot up like in more primitive countries

Gregory: and yet the Senate filibustered gun control

Noonan: yes but what if Obama turned
out to be Hitler – then gun control
would be a bad idea

Goodwin: or maybe we shouldn't let
a tiny minority of people control the U.S. Senate

Brokaw: background checks are not popular

Gregory: or maybe we just can't 
prevent some attacks

Goldberg: terrorism is not that great
a threat – don't get me started on
backyard swimming pools

Gregory: are we moving toward a
culture of people cowering in their homes?

Goodwin: not in Boston – people were
out there even when the bullets were flying

Noonan: 24 hour television encourages
mass hysteria and then has panels about mass hysteria

Gregory: and that's another episode
of Meet The Press

Possible Law Case with Georgetown University for Sexism and Racism Discrimination in Enrollment Process

Brief: A female advisor in the admissions department at Georgetown University has been caught openly admitting that she committed the CRIME of discrimination based on people's race and gender in the application process.

This has the potential to create a large scale lawsuit against Georgetown University, and with the momentum building at the rate it is building, seems very likely that will be the outcome.

Below are the main links to all of the information regarding this news story and case.
