Obama assassination bid fears - aircraft carriers on standby off Irish coast during G8 summit


@Press Eye Ltd Northern Ireland - 17th June 2013 - Mandatory Credit - Brian Little/ Presseye --- Culture Minister Carl N Chuiln and Minister for Education, John O'Dowd MLA waiting for US President Barack Obama during his visit to the Waterfront Hall, Belfast ahead of the G8 Summit in County Fermanagh.

.

.

It is understood that a contingency plan is in place for the unlikely event that an attempt would be made on the President’s life.

The Secret Service also have diplomatic immunity which will allow them to shoot to kill a would-be assassin without fear of prosecution.

As part of the “evacuation route” plan, they would be able to spirit the President by chopper to one of the carriers where a jet is on standby to take him back to the United States.

A source said: “It sounds like James Bond stuff but the Americans treat the personal protection of their President with the utmost seriousness.

“They have plans in place for all possible incidents, despite how unlikely they might seem or how much security is already in place.....

I think people will believe this to be bizarre. Looks like we’re expecting a full-fledged military invasion of Belfast.

They don’t want to assassinate the marxist tyrant, they just want to kick his ***.

Another costly bid to build sympathy for the community organizer.

If there is an immediate threat to our Dear Leader, I’m sure the military will protect Obama every bit as energetically as he protected our people in Benghazi. Obama deserves that level of loyalty from our military.

In incredible amount of hardware follows wherever the president goes. They even take their own fuel for AF-1 and have even upgraded foreign landing strips to carry the jet and those that follow.

I think that is pretty much standard for any US President.

Exactly. If there really is an assassination fear, then just get the Secret Service to lay of the prosties for a couple nights and protect him. This is weird.

He can't share a lobster salad lunch with a Congressional Committee because he didn't bring his "food tester" with him...

Banquets that he attends require the replacement of all the silverware with plastic sporks...

He attends a international conference and an aircraft carrier must be stationed nearby to receive him, just in case...

Has there ever been another President who demanded this level of security? Not even der Schlickmeister thought in such grandiose terms about his own personal safety...

After reducing our military to not more than a volunteer police force, how serious would an attack on dear leader be?

If I were him I would be more concerned about having a good selection and variety of food tasters. For example, how effective will a Navy jet be “after the fact”?

I suggest that Obozo acted stupidly allowing the four men to die in Benghazi. Two of those men could have provided a large measure of security for Obozo were they alive today.

Nobody in their right mind would want to assassinate 0bama...that is in their right mind. Not the jihadis, right wing conservatives, or anyone else I can think of. No, we want him alive. No martyrdom for this marxist, just an orange jump suit.

Give me a break !!!

Foreign assassins would like to kill our Dear Leader as much as they would want to go to the trouble and expense to kill Prince Hans-Adam II of Liechtenstein.

Why not off Obama? Because Obama is the most useful guy on the sides of our enemies, that's why.

Bambi has got to be the most paranoid president ever. I thought Nixon had that title, but Obama has surpassed him many times over.

When Bush went to Normandy to meet with our allies and commemorate the invasion and our dead who are buried there, he mingled with the crowds, and waited in line to use a porta-potty. Sure, he had Secret Service protection, but nothing like the vast numbers who accompany our Dear Leader everywhere.

When Zero went to Normandy after complaints that he had ignored it, he demanded that the entire area should be closed to the public while he was in the neighborhood.

And this year, he didn’t bother to mention the anniversary.

Correct.

It was bad enough after JFK -- streets, building, bridges, coins, etc.

The Dems would give a special sainthood to him.

concerned about having a good selection and variety of food tasters

Food tasters are almost useless against poisons like the Deathcap Mushroom (Amanita phalloides): The poisons in one cap are enough to kill a healthy adult. Symptoms are slow to show themselves and often do not appear until 10-16 hours or even longer after eating.

The timing given is approximate, for much depends on the general health of the individual and how much they’ve eaten. For example, if you’ve eaten a large meal of Deathcaps the symptoms could start as early as 6 hours after the meal.

The first symptoms are stomach pains, vomiting and diarrhoea. These may continue for a day or two, after which there is typically an easing of symptoms and apparent recovery. The "recovery" period may last for 2 or 3 days. Then the terminal phase of 3-5 days starts with the re-occurrence of stomach pains, vomiting and diarrhoea - accompanied by jaundice. Without effective, early medical intervention, coma and death occur between one and two weeks after eating the mushroom. Death is caused by liver failure, often accompanied by kidney failure.
