WHEN YOU TREAT THE OTHER PARTY LIKE AN ENEMY:

Homemade bombs sent to Obama, Clinton, CNN offices and Holder, officials say (Devlin Barrett, Mark Berman and Cleve R. Wootson Jr. October 24, 2018, Washington Post)

Authorities said Wednesday they had intercepted packages containing homemade explosive devices addressed to former secretary of state Hillary Clinton in New York and former president Barack Obama in Washington, while another bomb was discovered at CNN's offices in Manhattan.

The string of explosive devices and suspicious packages located in Washington, New York and Florida -- sent to public officials, former presidents and a cable news network in what politicians called attempted terror attacks -- prompted bipartisan condemnation and set off spasms of unease across the country, as security and law enforcement officers rushed to scour incoming mail for other potential undiscovered bombs.

The bombs and suspicious packages were located after an explosive device was found this week in a mailbox at the Bedford, N.Y., home of George Soros, the liberal philanthropist who is a frequent target of criticism from far-right groups.
