The second presidential debate led to a number of claims that could use a second look.

They include statements by both candidates on how to combat terrorism.

"We have to be sure that all Muslims come in and report when they see something going on," said Republican nominee Donald Trump. "As an example, in San Bernardino, many people saw the bombs all over the apartment of the two people that killed 14 and wounded many many people."

News 3 finds this is false. According to the Los Angeles Times, which has extensively covered the shootings in San Bernardino, California, there is no evidence that anyone saw bombs or weapons at the home of the shooters, although weapons were found in the townhouse. Neighbors apparently reported suspicious people coming and going from the home at odd hours, but did not report it to police for fear of profiling.

Then Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton made a claim about Trump's positions on Muslim immigration.

"I thought that what he said was extremely unwise and even dangerous," Clinton said. "Indeed you can look at the propaganda on a lot of the terrorist sites and what Donald Trump says about Muslims is used to recruit fighters."

News 3 finds this is true.

Earlier this year it was reported that an affiliate of al-Qaeda and another for ISIS were including clips of Trump's speeches in a video they're using for recruitment, telling Muslims they are not welcome in the United States.

The candidates then discussed the humanitarian crisis in Syria, and its causes.

"I don't like [Syrian President Bashar] Assad at all," Trump said. "But Assad is killing ISIS. Russia is killing ISIS. And Iran is killing ISIS. And those three have now lined up because of our weak foreign policy."

News 3 finds this is misleading. Assad and Russian forces have been bombing areas of Syria occupied by rebel groups that threaten their government. Assad considers ISIS to be one of those groups, but by most reports it is largely not ISIS that's been targeted by bombing.

Trump then followed by accusing Clinton of being part of the problem.

"She was there as the secretary of state with the so-called 'line in the sand,'" Trump said.

"No, I wasn't," Clinton responded. "I was gone, and I hate to interrupt but at some point we need to do some fact-checking here."

"You were in total contact with the White House," Trump said.

News 3 finds Clinton's statement here is misleading.

President Barack Obama made the statement about chemical weapon use in Syria as a "red line" in August of 2012 and Clinton was secretary of state until February 2013. Assad wasn't shown to have used those chemical weapons until August 2013, but reports show she did meet with Obama about his position on the issue after she was again a private citizen."
