Obama Assasination Plot Foiled


A Syrian man has reportedly been arrested in Turkey planning to assassinate US President Barack Obama on an upcoming visit. The man had managed to forge documents accrediting himself to be a journalist for the Al Jazeera network.

White House officials have refused to comment on security issues surrounding the president┬┤s overseas visits although this particular attempt is seen as a well-organized and serious attempt on Obama┬┤s life.

The would-be assassin confessed to the plan and claimed he had a further three accomplices in the attempt to stab the US president at close quarters, according to Saudi daily al Watan.

ASSESS this news: BLOCK this news. Reason:
after all that preparation and money to make it happen, all he could think up was to stab the president?

Insane fundamentalists out to kill whatever president du jour. Was this more of a Bush/McCain syrian?

Deja Vu!
  by: VermiciousG     04/07/2009 03:13 PM     
I think he meant this one
  by: VermiciousG     04/07/2009 03:16 PM     
  Personally I am confused...  
Why would any one want to stop him?
  by: Gaijin   04/07/2009 04:23 PM     
Ask Crayz0la, Big bird, Razaq, slave... etc.

The list goes on.
  by: VermiciousG     04/07/2009 04:42 PM     
Isn't Obama going to sit down and talk with this guy and see if he can understand why he feels the need to assassinate him. This could prevent him from attempting again when he sets him free.
Must be a rude awakening to find out your not liked the way you thought you would be. So much for change.
  by: hellblazer     04/07/2009 07:16 PM     
no, its a different story.
  by: frodo     04/07/2009 07:17 PM     
Thanks, thats what I thought I linked!
  by: frodo     04/07/2009 07:19 PM     
  What i wanna know is this ....  
Where the hell were these assassins during the past 8 years when America and the world needed them!!!

  by: M4CRO_   04/08/2009 02:05 AM     
America never needed Assassins because Violence does not solve anything. The presidents are all only puppets anyway! If you kill one, the next will continue with the same agenda. Its funny how some cant look behind the mask of Obama. He continues everything Bush did but somehow it doesn't matter for these people because he looks nice and does not like an idiot!

What, no "messiah" jokes while you're rehashing that rhetoric? Really?

  @ MACRO

thats a out of line statement.

i would appreciate it if next time you not compare me to some radical arab that wants to assassinate the president.
  by: cray0la     04/08/2009 09:19 AM     
You're right. I apologize to you Razaq and Slave.

  by: M4CRO_   04/08/2009 07:55 PM

  by: M4CRO_   04/08/2009 07:56 PM  
I'm laughing pretty hard at this, excellent website. I'm so very happy my family decided against emigrating to the United States.

A nation of barbarians and idiots indeed. I didn't realize being popular figure made some a neo-Hitler.

The west is being rotted from the inside out by people like this, they are truly the agents of their own destruction!

Got Troll?
  by: VermiciousG     04/08/2009 09:14 PM     
Here's what creeps me out when you guys say you want Obama's strategy to fix the U.S. economy to fail:

"A careful study of Osama bin Laden's videos, letters and Internet statements makes clear that Al Qaeda's goal is more than to terrorize Americans or to drive us out of the Middle East. Bin Laden believes that Al Qaeda can bring about the economic collapse of the United States."

I know the moderators are a little behind here, but you can't go around making accusations or allusions to the affect that certain of your fellow Shortnewsers are potential assassins without some repercussion. You've just insinuated that some of us are murderers.

And some of us are also pretty good computer users. You're probably pretty lucky some of us are not also murderers as you insinuate or you would be easy pickens compared to Dear Leader.

I hope Obama lives a long, long time to remember the scam he pulled, when he is in prison. No one should harm a sitting U.S. President, whether he got there right or not. Arrested is another matter, if his immunity is found to be imperfect.

  @Big Bird  
There's a big difference between wishing someone dead and plotting to murder someone. Perhaps I'm wrong but I don't recall suggesting anyone here or anywhere had any murderous intent except perhaps in jest.

Now, let's talk about you're thinly veiled threat of cyber-stalking and picking me off.
  by: VermiciousG     04/10/2009 02:06 AM     
You're a hideous troll. I don't care what you think of my politics, it is truly beyond the pale to suggest I am some kind of violent criminal, and the idea that I am stalking you, where you sneak in these passive-aggressive attacks on my character such as you've done above is the height of absurdity.

I won't dignify you with further reponses.
  by: Big Bird     04/10/2009 06:00 AM     
  @Big Bird  
Awesome! Thanks Bird!

Gee, I didn't get you anything :(
