Saudis Report Plot To Assassinate Obama
 
Saudis Report Plot To Assassinate Obama

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The Saudi Arabian newspaper al-Watan reported today that Turkish security services have arrested a man of Syrian origins Friday in connection with a plot to assassinate President Barack Obama during his current visit to Turkey.

The man, who was carrying an Al-Jazeera TV ID card in the name of M.G., confessed after his arrest that he was planning on stabbing the U.S. president with a knife during the Alliance of Civilizations summit held in Istanbul, adding that he had three other accomplices to help him execute his plan.

According to the paper, Turkish investigators were trying to verify whether the Qatari-based Arab TV channel has truly issued the ID card produced by the man, or if itís a forged copy.

The suspect, a permanent resident of Istanbul, has been regularly attending all conferences

So who do we bomb first, Syria or Turkey?

Evidently the goat herders didn't get the message.

"Stabbing with a knife" - was the plan?

Except in the Muslim world where they are just blindly irrational.

THAT was the plan? It's no wonder they make jokes about these people.

I say we bomb Canada - they'll never suspect a thing.

Sadly, this is just one in a long list of wackos out there who will plot to assassinate Obama over the next 3-1/2 years. :screwy: :shakehead01: Dude's elevator doesn't go to the top floor, obviously, as he wouldn't have ever gotten close enough to Obama to "stab him with a knife". Secret Service would have been on him like flies on :poop:

Does anyone find it ironic that it was going to happen at the "Alliance of Civilizations" conference.

Civilization began in the Fertile Crescent----what is now the Middle East----some 7,000 years ago and I am convinced that it has not progressed forward even a single day since then

In his book ,The Satanic Verses, Salmon Rushdie calls muslims "Barbaric".
Then Komeini put a million-dollar price on his head---proving Rushdie was basically correct

Well, we know they like to throw shoes. There has been a case of a shoe bomb. So the next logical step would be...A shoe knife.

Maybe he recently watched Road House. :chuckle:
