Contributor Post Created with Sketch. Breaking: Terror Attack in Barcelona

 

A terrorist driving a vehicle struck many pedestrians in Barcelona with 13 confirmed deaths at this time. Barcelona police have declared it a terror attack. From the LA Times:

A white van jumped the sidewalk in this city’s historic Las Ramblas district and crashed into a summer crowd of residents and tourists Thursday, killing at least 13, according to Spanish media. Police said they are treating the incident as a terror attack.

The Barcelona-based La Vanguardia newspaper reported at least 20 injured, and the Spanish newspaper El Pais quoted unnamed police sources as saying that armed perpetrators of the crash were holed up in a bar in Tallers Street. There was no immediate police confirmation of the latter report.

It is fascinating and fun to watch the meltdown. (What is a meltdown called when it is pereptual?).

Jim Geraghty of National Review and Greg Corombos of Radio America get the popcorn ready as the Hillary and Sanders Democrats feud over the future of the party. They also rip the media for overblowing Donald Trump’s statement on NATO being obsolete but also scold Trump for stoking some of the confusion.
