Anti-Islam Activist Gaffney: Bombs May Be Effort To 'Deflect Attention' From 'Left's Mobs' - 2018-10-24
A leading anti-Islam activist with close ties to the Trump administration suggested Wednesday that a string of bombs sent to high-profile Democratic figures and newsrooms was an effort "to deflect attention from the Left's mobs."
"None of the leftists ostensibly targeted for pipe-bombs were actually at serious risk, since security details would be screening their mail," Frank Gaffney, executive chairman of the Center for Security Policy, wrote on Twitter. "So let's determine not only who is responsible for these bombs, but whether they were trying to deflect attention from the Left's mobs."
That message comes as law enforcement reports that "functional" explosive devices were sent to philanthropist George Soros, Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama, Rep. Debbie Wasserman-Schultz, and the newsrooms at CNN's New York headquarters and the San Diego Tribune.
