Cuomo: This Is Political Terrorism

"This is a different definition of terrorism, this is political terrorism. This would be, if it turns out, political terrorism, left or right, Democrat or Republican."

Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D-NY) called the attempted pipe bomb attacks that targeted leaders of the Democratic Party and CNN’s offices in New York City an act of “political terrorism,” during an interview with CNN on Wednesday.

CNN’s Wolf Blitzer asked Cuomo about having authorities on high alert, and the possibility of finding more bombs.

“There’s no doubt about it, this has continually grown,” Cuomo said. “So you don’t know where the string ends, and it’s not just New York. This has been all across the country. There is an apparent political motivation to it.”

“This takes us to a whole new chapter in terrorism,” Cuomo added.

“When we talk about terrorism we have always talked about it in the international context, even domestic terrorism was committed domestically but normally had an international component,” Cuomo said. “This is a different definition of terrorism, this is political terrorism. This would be, if it turns out, political terrorism, left or right, Democrat or Republican.”

“This takes us to a new chapter, and frankly in some ways a more frightening chapter, because it is internal to the United States. What it’s saying is, we have gotten so vitriolic, so angry, so hate-filled, that our politics has actually gotten to the point where we’re looking to harm one another,” Cuomo said.
