Threatened to Kill Obama and Clinton

Add another in the growing list of extremely tragic, luckily no one was hurt in this potential deadly incident, and potentially leading to more that the Hate Rhetoric and Actions are bringing forth!

Ex-soldier arrrested at Fort Stewart threated to kill Obama

Sep 07, 2010 - SAVANNAH, Ga. - A former soldier accused of demanding mental treatment as he took hostages at gunpoint at a Georgia Army hospital later told investigators he planned to kill President Obama and former President Bill Clinton, federal prosecutors said in court documents filed Tuesday.

Federal charges filed in U.S. District Court in Savannah identified the accused gunman as 29-year-old Robert Anthony Quinones. The Army says he took three hospital workers hostage early Monday in a two-hour standoff at Winn Army Community Hospital at Fort Stewart, 40 miles southwest of Savannah. Army officials say the gunman surrendered. No one was injured.

Federal prosecutors charged Quinones with kidnapping and assault with deadly weapons in connection with the hospital hostage standoff. He was also charged with making threats to kill Obama and Clinton.

And the results of these Wars of Choice, a soldier lost in the lack of concern by the government, and people, during the previous years, as so many were, and making it harder to find them and catchup with giving the help they should have been already involved in as soon as they were discharged!

"The reason he was at the hospital the other night was to seek some treatment," Gladwell told The Associated Press. "He's been diagnosed as being ill and this was a desperate cry for help."

Quinones' mother said her son was diagnosed after serving a 15-month tour in Iraq in 2006 and 2007 with an Army Stryker brigade based at Fort Lewis, Wash. She said he moved to Hinesville, next to Fort Stewart, to live with her after his discharge.

Gladwell declined to discuss her son's history in detail. She said he did not yet have a lawyer.

But Gladwell sounded stunned to hear prosecutors had charged her son with threatening to kill Obama and Clinton.

"I know nothing about that," she said. "That's totally off the wall for him." {read more}

No need to add more many already know what was going on during the previous administration, that congress, the Pentagon and the VA. But this will be followed, if any reports are forth coming, as to exactly what discharge this soldier received as he was pushed out because he was already known to be suffering from PTSD according to his mother.
