About "Mailed Terrorism"
A series of suspected explosive packages were intercepted on route to dominant democratic figures. A total of 12 packages had been identified as of Friday, October 26th. All 12 were intercepted by authorities and were not delivered to the intended target. The packages were addressed to individuals criticized by President Trump, including George Soros, Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama, Joe Biden, and Eric Holder. It is unclear if the devices were wired to explode or designed for the sake of fear. Authorities have declined to confirm either way but have treated the devices as though they were live. Cesar Sayoc from Florida was arrested by the FBI in connection with the devices. His past record shows a string of arrests beginning in the early 1990s and a history of anti-liberal posts on social media.
The overwhelming political response to the bombs has been one of unity, civil discourse, and the call to vote. President Trump focused on unity in his dialogue on Wednesday, but lashed out at the media again on Thursday, condemning news sources for stating that his rhetoric is responsible for the terrorist event. Many believe that the event will influence the upcoming election, potentially swaying voters and allowing democrats to win back the House of Representatives.
This week’s topics of debate include the mailed bombs, upcoming elections, the IPCC, journalist Khashoggi, and more!
