Haven't we seen this before in Big D?

Post by Bob »

Awhile back, Bruce had a thought about the possibility of Barack Obama perhaps getting assassinated, or at least having an attempt on his life.

This story I read today made my skin crawl...

Report: Security relaxed at Obama speech
Published: Feb. 21, 2008 at 6:27 PM
DALLAS, Feb. 21 (UPI) --

The Secret Service told Dallas police to stop screening for weapons while people were still arriving at a campaign rally for Barack Obama, a report said.

Police stopped checking people for weapons at the front gates of Reunion Arena more than an hour before the Democratic presidential hopeful appeared on stage Wednesday, the Fort Worth (Texas) Star-Telegram reported.

Police said the order to stop using metal detectors and checking purses and laptop bags constituted a security lapse, the newspaper reported.

Dallas Deputy Police Chief T.W. Lawrence -- who heads the department's homeland security and special operations divisions -- told the Star-Telegram the order had been intended to speed up seating of the more than 17,000 people who came to hear the candidate speak.

Lawrence said he was concerned about the large number of people being let in without being screened, but that the crowd seemed "friendly," the newspaper said.

Several Dallas police officers -- speaking on condition of anonymity because the order came from federal officers -- told the newspaper it was worrying to see so many people get it without even a cursory inspection.

The Star-Telegram said the Secret Service did not return a call seeking comment.

Dear JFK RFK MLK Forum Members and Readers:

02.22.2008 - Bob Fox originally Posted and Circulated this important speculative Headline and Supporting Material.

Bob Fox, in addition to being a Professional Sport's writer for the Green Bay Packers, is also an excellent researcher and writer about government, history, politics, etc.

Full disclosure: Bob and I are decades long friends and today I remembered one of our many phone conversations and this small piece of Bob's very large Work Product today reading about the Total Breakdown of Law Enforcement, Planning, and Security recently in the U.S. Capital.

What coincidences or patterns of neglect are similar ?

As always, I strongly recommend that you first read, research, and study material
completely yourself about a Subject Matter, and then formulate your own Opinions
and Theories.

Any additional analyses, interviews, investigations, readings, research, studies,
thoughts, or writings on any aspect of this Subject Matter ?

Bear in mind that we are trying to attract and educate a Whole New Generation
of JFK Researchers who may not be as well versed as you.
