Boston and the Modern Manhunt

Hosted by

After releasing photographs from surveillance cameras, the FBI and local police made fast work of identifying and tracking down two suspects in last week's deadly attack on the Boston Marathon. Did social media help more than it hindered? Did mistakes by established news organizations create unnecessary confusion? Why did a million people have to stay indoors with only one wounded fugitive still at large? Also, Israel says Syria used chemical weapons, and the French parliament defied massive street protests and legalized same-sex marriage today.  What's the role of politics and a troubled economy?
