What the Orlando Shooting Means for the War on Terror (With All Due Respect – 06/13/16)

7 months ago 20

Early Sunday, the worst terrorist attack on U.S. soil since 9/11 unfolded in Orlando. The shooting at Pulse, a gay nightclub, left 50 dead, including the gunman, who has been identified by law enforcement authorities as Omar Mateen. Mateen called 911 and pledged allegiance to the Islamic State (ISIS) shortly before the attack. The tragedy is sure to increase pressure on U.S. officials as they struggle to detect lone wolf terrorists without violating civil liberties. It also changes the dynamics of an already heated 2016 presidential campaign. The presumptive Democratic and Republican nominees offered starkly different responses to the attack on Monday, with Hillary Clinton arguing for stricter gun control measures and Donald Trump urging a temporary immigration ban.

Tonight on ‘With All Due Respect,’ we’ll look at how the Orlando shooting could change the trajectory of the war on terror and U.S. politics.
