President Barack Obama on Tuesday defended his administration’s handling of the Boston bombings, refuting an accusation by Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) that the attacks were the administration’s fault.

“Mr. Graham is not right on this issue, although it may have generated some headlines,” he said in a press conference.

“I have no idea who bears the blame. I just know the system is broken. The ultimate blame I think is with the administration,” Graham told CNN Thursday.

Obama pointed to the government’s response after the bombings. “I think that what we saw in Boston was state, local, federal officials, every agency, rallying around a city that had been attacked, identifying the perpetrators just hours after the scene had been examined,” he said. “We now have one individual deceased, one in custody. Charges have been brought.”
