There was another Assassination Threat Against Obama, this Time by Radical White Supremists! What I find interesting is in this attempt, the culprits had almost the same equipment as the first assassin. (see my 1st Assassin Blog).
Plot to Kill Obama - Shoot From High Vantage Point
(link includes video confession) DENVER (CBS4/AP) ― (Summary)
Arrests: Four people suspected in a possible plot to shoot Barack Obama at his Thursday night acceptance speech in Denver. All are being held on either drug or weapons charges.
Nathan Johnson: "they didn't want him to be president" "they were going to shoot Obama from a high vantage point using a rifle sighted at 750 yards. "
The story began emerging Sunday morning when Aurora police arrested Tharin Gartrell, 28. He was driving a rented pickup truck in an erratic manner, according to sources. Sources told CBS4 police found two high-powered, scoped rifles in the car along with camouflage clothing, walkie-talkies, wigs, a bulletproof vest, a spotting scope, licenses in the names of other people and 44 grams of methamphetamine. One of the rifles is listed as stolen from Kansas. Aurora police alerted federal officials because of heightened security surrounding the Democratic convention.
Subsequently authorities went to the Cherry Creek Hotel in Glendale to contact an associate of Gartrell's. But that man, identified as Shawn Robert Adolph, 33, who was wanted on numerous warrants, jumped out of a sixth floor hotel window. Law enforcement sources say Adolph broke an ankle in the fall and was captured moments later. Sources say he had a handcuff ring and was wearing a swastika, and is thought to have ties to white supremacist organizations. Nathan Johnson, 32, an associate of Gartrell and Adolph, was also arrested Sunday morning. He told authorities that the two men had "planned to kill Barack Obama at his acceptance speech." "He don't belong in political office. Blacks don't belong in political office. He ought to be shot," Johnson told Maass. "Do you think they were really plotting to kill Obama?" Maass asked. "I don't want to say yes. I don't want to say no," he said. Johnson's girlfriend Natasha Gromek is also under arrest on drug charges.
Update later today after Feds conduct Press Conference.
