US: Investigators dig for bomb motive, warn more could be found. By Michael Blasamo.
Investigators searched coast-to-coast Thursday for the culprit and motives behind the bizarre mail-bomb plot aimed at critics of the president, analyzing the innards of the crude devices to reveal whether they were intended to detonate or simply sow fear two weeks before Election Day.
Three more devices were linked to the plot — two addressed to former Vice President Joe Biden and one to actor Robert De Niro — bringing the total to 10 in an outbreak of politically loaded menace with little if any precedent. Authorities warned there might well be more.
Law enforcement officials told The Associated Press that the devices, containing timers and batteries, were not rigged like booby-trapped package bombs that would explode upon opening. But they were still uncertain whether the devices were poorly designed or never intended to cause physical harm. …
Check out the humble homes that the targets live in. Lot of money in leftist politics, hmmm. Didn’t buy these on their salaries:
Funniest suggestion I’ve heard is that it could be Russians.
Anyway, the bombs have changed the topic — away from the caravan of invading immigrants from Honduras, and #jobsNotMobs, which were big winners for the Republicans. Someone on the left is laughing.
Even with the sender still unknown, politicians from both parties used the threats to decry a toxic political climate and lay blame.
“A very big part of the Anger we see today in our society is caused by the purposely false and inaccurate reporting of the Mainstream Media that I refer to as Fake News,” Trump said on Twitter. “It has gotten so bad and hateful that it is beyond description. Mainstream Media must clean up its act, FAST!”
Former CIA Director John Brennan, the target of a package sent to CNN, fired back.
“Stop blaming others. Look in the mirror,” Brennan tweeted. “Your inflammatory rhetoric, insults, lies, & encouragement of physical violence are disgraceful. Clean up your act….try to act Presidential.”
Chutzpah! The Democrats have a near monopoly on recent inflammatory rhetoric — not that you’d know that from the mainstream media, which is why Brennan isn’t laughed off the stage.
