**UPDATE: Suspicious Package Addressed To White House Intercepted**

A lot of news has been made lately about members of the GOP being attacked by liberal crazies. But this time the Dems are on the receiving end. 

Former Presidents Barack Obama and Bill Clinton were the targets of suspicious packages thought to be explosive devices on Wednesday. The escalation on both sides is getting out of hand.

According to CNBC:

The U.S. Secret Service said Wednesday that "potential explosive devices" were sent to former President Barack Obama and ex-presidential candidate Hillary Clinton.

A law enforcement official told The New York Times that the "explosive device" sent to the Clintons' home in Chappaqua, New York, was found by a technician who screens mail for the former president and his family.

The Secret Service said in a statement that the package addressed to Obama was intercepted by agency personnel in Washington, D.C. on Wednesday morning.

"The packages were immediately identified during routine mail screening procedures as potential explosive devices and were appropriately handled as such," Assistant Special Agent Mason Brayman said in the statement. "The protectees did not receive the packages nor were they at risk of receiving them."

The Secret Service is reported to have launched a full-scale investigation to find those responsible for this act. Political differences should never cloud the ability to see right and wrong.
