The "plot" against Obama

Right now it seems hard to tell whether the alleged Obama assassination plot wasn't a "credible threat" because the men weren't actually planning on that, or whether they were fortunately too stupid to pose a credible threat:

Gartrell was erratically driving a rented 2008 blue Dodge Ram truck that was not registered in his name. The guns, ammo, drugs and other equipment were found in the truck.

The drug, naturally, was crystal meth.

Adolf was injured when he fell four stories onto the second-floor roof of the hotel kitchen. He then jumped again onto the ground around the hotel, where police caught him a short time later.

Asked whether they were trying to kill Obama, the third conspirator said: "Looking back at it, I don't want to say yes, but I don't want to say no." 9News in Denver has more.
