Sen. Tim Kaine confidently suggested America is safer today; he failed to mention the string of terror attacks in the U.S. and Western Europe over the last year.
Sen. Kaine responded to an Elaine Quijano question about terrorism, and whether the world is a “safer or more dangerous place,” by asserting the “terrorist threat has decreased in some ways.”
Kaine brought up the death of Osama bin Laden, who was killed in 2011.
He also cited the Iran nuclear deal, even though Iran is still the top state sponsor of terrorism.
Kaine’s analysis also ignores the more recent Paris attacks of November 2015, the San Bernadino shooting of December 2015, the Brussels attacks of March 2016, the Orlando shooting of June 2016, the Nice attack of July 2016, and other ISIS attacks.
