Obama Assassination Plot Foiled in Colorado

Nathan Johnson and Tharin Gartrell

A routine traffic stop for a suspected drunken driver lead Aurora,
Colorado police officers to apprehend a group that were allegedly
plotting to assassinate the Democratic presidential presumptive
nominee, Barack Obama, during his upcoming open air
acceptance speech that will air on national television on Thursday
night in front of a crowd of 70,000.

Tharin Gartrell, a 28 year old convicted felon, was
stopped when police observed his vehicle swerving between lanes early
Sunday morning. They found two high-powered scoped rifles, ammunition,
sighting scopes, radios, a cellphone, a bulletproof vest, wigs, drugs
and fake ID’s.

As reported by Denver’s KCNC Channel 4, under questioning Gartrell implicated three others–Nathan Johnson, 32, Shawn Adolph, 33, and Natasha Gromack,
who is Johnson’s girlfriend. Adolph, who wore a ring with a Nazi
swastika, was injured when he jumped out of a hotel window while
fleeing Secret Service agents. The group is being held on weapons and
drug charges.

Under questioning, the group revealed that they planned to kill Obama during his

nationally televised speech at Invesco Field on Thursday night. They are each being held in Arapahoe County jail on $50,000 bail.

Several federal law enforcement agencies have been investigating the
threat for the past 48 hours and believe that the group of drug using
criminals posed no credible threat to Obama.

A news conference will be held at 4:00 p.m. Denver time on Tuesday
by FBI, Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, and Aurora
police. Aurora is 25 minutes from Denver.
