President Obama and French President Sarkozy emerge to address media prior to a town hall meeting in France last week (White House Photo)
JERUSALEM A Syrian national was arrested in connection with a plot to assassinate President Obama during a key speech he is set to deliver tomorrow, a Saudi newspaper claimed today.

The newspaper, al-Watan, reported Turkish security services arrested a Turkish resident of Syrian origins Friday who confessed to a plot to stab the U.S. president with a knife during his speech tomorrow to the U.N.'s Alliance of Civilizations summit in Istanbul. The man allegedly told interrogators he was working with at least three other people to execute his assassination attempt.

The man reportedly was carrying an Al-Jazeera television identity card. The Saudi report stated Turkish authorities were investigating whether the press card was a fake or whether it had actually been issued by the Qatari-based news network.

According to the report, the man, whose name was not released, had been in attendance at several events posing as an Al Jazeera journalist. Al-Jazeera's bureau chief in Ankara, Yucef al-Sharif, said news of the suspect came as a complete surprise to Al-Jazeera staff in Turkey. He said Al Jazeera knew nothing about the man.

"We learned that (the suspect) claimed to be working for our bureau. If that has been the case then he most certainly forged our ID card," al-Sharif told the al-Watan newspaper in a phone call from Ankara.

Shit guys, wtf.  I was just talking about how every president is a puppet and if they step out of line there are contingency plans.  I also explained who has historically been behind those plans.  I sure as hell did not think anything like this was going to happen and I wish the Obamas well. As far as I am concerned he is my president (even if that title now relates to a manager at Burger King); so nobody better touch a hair on my president! He needs to come home and answer a few questions about wtf is up with selling this country off to international bankers!

Oh and BTW, I have already removed all sharp objects and only using plastic from now on ;)

well that makes sense (WTF?)

Why doesn't 24 really push the envelope and do a real scary show:

"A patriot/patsy who gets blamed for a false flag caused by the international banking cartel"

Sorry, but the truth is so much more scary than the ticking clock on the Cheney masterbation network.

Was it a "stake knife" or a "steak knife"? This is important; goes to a potential vampirism connection versus regular guy, and could remove any ninjas from the matter.

Many people ask why after 45 years doesn't the government just admit what happened with JFK.  The answer is obvious, you cannot reveal plans that you wish to reuse in the future.

In any case, here was the thread from yesterday: http://forum.prisonplanet.com/index.php?topic=97586.0
It mostly explains what happened historically and included many news articles over the past year.  Also talked about how NWO uses multiple contingency plans to make sure the managers at burger king do not give away too many free fries.  I truly wish the Obamas a safe return and am sickened to think that people would even be recruitable for these acts of violence given what we know.  An educated public is their greatest fear.  And that is really the point of what all of you are doing IMO.

Uh no, it follows right in line with Brezkinski's and the NWO's  fear mongering of Muslims.   Plus not every Syrian or Turk (especially) is anti-West.  You probably have more NWO assets there than most realize.

Turkey's government is a big NATO and US supporter. But the Turkish people were 99% against the war on Iraq, and the US had a big problem getting Turkey to allow re-fueling and re-supply bases there.

What's wrong with Midnight Cowboy, by the way? John Voigt (correct spelling, I believe - it's a common German name) was in it, but so was Dustin Hoffman. I know from personal contacts that Dustin Hoffman's parents are (or were) honest Leftists. Midnight Cowboy is a huge indictment of American society: which is why you don't see it much on TV.

Yeah Dustin definitely was good in Marathon Man (Is it safe?) but Midnight Cowboy was the first wide release that I know of showing someone going through MK Ultra type combbination of drugs/sensory stimulation.  Have you seen it recently? Anyway you are right, that was pure specualtion and I shoulda kept my mouth shut and it is completely O/T. By the way, the media is completely hush about this.  Does the culprit have friends that no one should know about?  Looks like they want to act like none of this happened.

And they quiety let him off the hook...

Turkey releases man held in alleged plot against Obama
http://www.cnn.com/2009/POLITICS/04/07/turkey.assassination.plot/index.html

ISTANBUL, Turkey (CNN) -- Turkish authorities have released a Syrian man who was arrested last week in connection with an alleged plan to kill President Obama, a senior U.S. official said.


President Obama addresses the Turkish parliament on Monday.

 The official said that although U.S. authorities take all threats seriously, they do not believe that the president's life was ever in serious danger.

Details concerning the man's release were not immediately available.

The alleged plot was first reported by the Saudi Arabian newspaper al-Watan, which revealed that Turkish security services arrested a man of Syrian origins Friday in connection with a plan to kill Obama during his visit to Turkey.

Obama was in Strasbourg, France, on Friday for a NATO Summit and did not arrive in Turkey for the final leg of his trip until Sunday.

The Saudi paper reported that the Syrian man, who was carrying an Al-Jazeera TV press credential in the name of "M.G.," confessed to authorities after his arrest that he and three alleged accomplices were plotting to stab Obama with a knife during the Alliance of Civilizations Summit in Istanbul, which Obama attended Monday evening.

The U.S. officials confirmed those allegations but emphasized that the information provided by the man is still being verified.

Laid-off banker finds work as Obama mimic in Turkish ad
Al-Jazeera's bureau chief in Ankara, Yucef al-Sharif, told the newspaper that his news organization knew nothing about the man and suggested that he may have obtained a forged press credential.

According to U.S. officials, it's unclear whether the man -- a permanent resident of Istanbul -- had obtained a real press credential, as the investigation is still ongoing.

On Sunday, U.S. and international journalists covering Obama's trip faced more extensive searches of their baggage than usual by the U.S. Secret Service before boarding a press charter flight from the Prague, Czech Republic, region to Ankara, Turkey. The same extensive searches were conducted Monday before a flight from Ankara to Istanbul.

But U.S. officials downplayed the possibility that the more extensive searches were done out of a concern that plotters may have infiltrated the media. Instead the officials suggested that since Turkish security officials had not necessarily handled such a large crush of media before, Secret Service officials simply wanted to go the extra mile in their searches.

Turkey hmmmm

CHICAGO, April 7 (Xinhua) -- A man suspected of stealing a plane from a Canadian flight school, flying over three U.S. states and attracting F-16 fighter escorts has been put into custody by state troopers in the U.S. state of Missouri, according to reports reaching here on Tuesday.

    Adam Leon, 31, was being held without bond, the Missouri State Highway Patrol said. U.S. Federal investigators plan to interview him later to determine whether he has violated immigration law, the U.S. Immigrations and Customs Enforcement agency said.

    Leon was arrested at a convenience store in Ellsinore, in southeastern Mossouri shortly after he landed the single-engine, four-seat Cessna to end a six-hour flight on Monday night.

    The plane was reported stolen on Monday afternoon from Confederation College Flight School at Thunder Bay International Airport in Canada's Ontario Province. It was intercepted by F-16 fighters from the Wisconsin National Guard after crossing into thestate near the Michigan border.

    "We don't want to suppose the motive of the individual," said Kucharek, an official of North American Aerospace Defense Command (NORAD).

    NORAD is the bi-national Canadian and American command that is responsible for the air defense of North America and maritime warning.

    "But it certainly made a day for the professional pilots that were flying these missions and a very serious situation from a NORAD perspective," said Kucharek.

    In the midst of the pursuit, the state of Wisconsin evacuated the Capitol Building in state capital Madison for less than an hour as a precaution.

    Eventually, the man landed the plane on a road in southeastern Missouri, parking it under what appeared to be a bridge or culvert, apparently to hide it, a federal law enforcement source said.

    The pilot said he was trying to commit suicide but did not have the courage to do it himself. And his idea was to fly the aircraft into the United States, where he might be shot down.

    FBI spokesman Richard Kolko told CNN that Leon was a native of Turkey who changed his name from Yavuz Berke and became a Canadian citizen last year.
