    Ankara - A Syrian national who allegedly planned to stab US President Barack Obama was arrested in Istanbul on Friday, Turkish media reported on Tuesday. The man had attempted to gain press credentials for Obama's visit claiming he worked for the Al Jazeera. The Ankara correspondent for Al Jazeera said that they had never heard of the man.

    Reports said he had confessed to police after his arrest.

    Obama arrived in Ankara Sunday night. He flew to Istanbul on Monday and left Istanbul for Washington Tuesday afternoon.

    I think that could have been any of our presidents and that guy would have taken a stab at it. What i want to know if that guy was Muslim?

    You are now on a watch list.

    By the way a crazy nut job muslim decided to give our military a work out today. He landed his plane in Missouri after a very long chase. The air force was very soft on this guy. They should have dropped him from the sky.

    No i really believe the whole Canadian deal, which only goes to prove, once Canada snubs you, you lost all credibilitary has a tough nation. Wasnt he picked up at a convience store? He had time to leave the plane, run and make it to a store for a light snack. How sad is that.

    Just another reason I have called it quits and let the chips fall because warning people who dont want to be warned is a waste of time.

    Hey, you on that list too?
