Thompson: We will catch the people responsible

Posted: Updated:
WASHINGTON, D. C (Mississippi News Now) -

Mississippi Congressman Bennie Thompson has been following developments in the Boston Marathon bombing investigation from his Washington office.

Thompson is the ranking member of the House Homeland Security Committee and he assures the public is that congress is monitoring the situation on Boston.

Thompson also says the system worked when those bombs went off.

"Our responders were there; police, fire and  health personnel," said Thompson. "And what we're now doing is collecting evidence to try and get to the bottom of what really happened."

Thompson says it's hard to sort out the domestic terrorists and the international terrorists when you have more than a thousand groups identified in this county that have ties to terrorism, but wants to assure the public that the people responsible for the bombings will be caught.

Thompson was interviewed Tuesday morning on MSNBC's Jansing & Co.
