Colombian official: Rebels planned to kill Bush

Colombian official: Rebels planned to kill Bush
Saturday, November 27, 2004 Posted: 5:00 PM EST (2200 GMT)

(CNN) -- U.S. President George W. Bush was targeted for assassination by Marxist rebels this week when he visited the city of Cartagena, a Colombian official said Saturday.

"We found out through informers and various sources that groups within the [Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia] had been instructed from its leadership to make an assassination attempt on President Bush," Colombian Defense Secretary Jorge Alberto Uribe told Caracol TV, a Bogota-based satellite network.

Uribe said no evidence of the alleged plot by the group -- Fuerzas Armadas Revolucionarias de Colombia or FARC -- has been recovered.

The U.S. Secret Service declined to comment on the alleged plot.

"The Secret Service does not comment or release information regarding our protective intelligence and protective methods," said spokesman Jonathan Cherry. "Secret Service does not discuss any alleged threats to our protectees."

Security was heavy during Bush's visit, and no incidents occurred.

"We have full confidence in the fine work of the Secret Service and their work with security officials on the ground," in Colombia and elsewhere, White House spokesman Jim Morrell said.

FARC has frequently been accused of targeting visiting international leaders for assassination.

"The administration of George W. Bush is everything that Marxist rebels hate in a U.S. government," journalist Toby Muse in Bogota, Colombia, told CNN.

"The plots against the president's life don't seem to have advanced very far," Muse said.

The president stopped briefly in Colombia on November 22 on his way back to Washington after attending the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation summit in Santiago, Chile. (Full story)

Established in 1964 as the military wing of the Colombian Communist Party, FARC is Colombia's oldest, largest, most capable and best-equipped Marxist rebel group, according to the U.S. Department of State. The group, which has about 13,500 members, conducts bombings, murders, kidnappings and hijackings, the State Department said.

The State Department has classified FARC as a terrorist group.

Colombia has seen decades of civil warfare, involving government troops, leftist rebels and right-wing paramilitary groups.

CNN's Suzanne Malveaux contributed to this report.

Too bad indeed, but would Cheney be any better?

The death of Bush would change nothing besides the figurehead speaking

Ah yes. We all love the killing of people we don't like. Irony.

It's well known that Marxist rebels control a lot of the cocaine trade(which they use to finance their war against the Coloumbian government). Does anybody else find it ironic that they made an effort to kill one of their best customers from years past?

One might even argue that many Muslim terrorists were initially supported, supplied, and trained by American CIA ops...

The CIA aren't terrorists. They're freedom fighters.

The American Heritage Dictionary of the English Language, Fourth Edition defines freedom as:

free?dom
n.
1. The condition of being free of restraints.
2. Liberty of the person from slavery, detention, or oppression.

3.
a. Political independence.
b. Exemption from the arbitrary exercise of authority in the performance of a specific action; civil liberty: freedom of assembly.
4. Exemption from an unpleasant or onerous condition: freedom from want.
5. The capacity to exercise choice; free will: We have the freedom to do as we please all afternoon.
6. Ease or facility of movement: loose sports clothing, giving the wearer freedom.
7. Frankness or boldness; lack of modesty or reserve: the new freedom in movies and novels.
8.
a. The right to unrestricted use; full access: was given the freedom of their research facilities.
b. The right of enjoying all of the privileges of membership or citizenship: the freedom of the city.
9. A right or the power to engage in certain actions without control or interference: ?the seductive freedoms and excesses of the picaresque form? (John W. Aldridge).

Since when did overthrowing democratically elected governments in countless countries, arming and training terrorists, engaging in propaganda wars, brainwashing, inciting social and political unrest, performing assassinations and staging coups, etc., etc., become classified as "freedom fighting". Your statement astounds me. Comparing CIA ops to freedom fighters? Nuh uh, no way. The colonials were freedom fighters when they battled the redcoats. The CIA is a terrorist organaization.

Government Backs Off Claim Rebels Plotted Against Bush

Colombia's government backpedaled Monday on a statement by Defense Minister Jorge Uribe's that Marxist rebels wanted to assassinate President Bush. Uribe said Friday that the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia ordered followers to "attack" Bush during his Nov. 22 visit to Colombia. The Interior and Justice minister said the government had no knowledge of a specific plan to target Bush.
