Obama Assassination Plot Disrupted

Frightening news from the last day of the president’s overseas trip: A man with an Al-Jazeera press pass plotted to stab Obama at the Summit of Civilizations in Turkey, CBS News reports. After being arrested by Turkish authorities, the Syrian man confessed to the plot and said he had three other accomplices. The suspect had been “regularly attending all the conferences and events relating to the Middle East” in Istanbul. It is unclear whether the man actually did work for Al-Jazeera or if the pass was a forgery.
