WASHINGTON — President Barack Obama has called Massachusetts Gov. Deval Patrick and Boston Mayor Thomas Menino to pledge the government’s full support in the investigation into the Boston Marathon bombing.

Obama received another briefing Friday afternoon in the Oval Office from Lisa Monaco, his counterterrorism and homeland security adviser.

Earlier Friday, he and Vice President Joe Biden were briefed in the Situation Room by his national security team, including Attorney General Eric Holder and FBI Director Robert Mueller.
