Uzbek pleads guilty in plot to kill Obama

22-year old Ulugbek Kodirov of Uzbekistan had admitted to planning to assassinate the US President Barack Obama during his re-election campaign.

The US Judge could have sent him to prison for 30-years but, had pity on him and sent him to prison for 15-years.

This has been reported in of dated 15th of July 2012.

From what has transpired during the trials, this young man, who had been staying illegally in the US, got carried away by imaginary dreams and ended up by getting caught.

It seems in July-2011, he had come in contact with someone who identified himself as ‘the emir’. Kodirov believed that tis man was a member of member of the Islamic Movement of Uzbekistan.

This person had, apparently, egged him on and had suggested that he use a sniper rifle to kill the US President but, our Uzbek youth did not agree to use a sniper rifle because it would be a costly affair.

Moreover, he was not trained to handle such a sophisticated weapon.

Instead, he decided to shoot the President from close range and bought a Sendra M115A1 automatic rifle from an undercover agent on 13 July.

The agent also gave him four hand grenades which had already been made useless by removing the explosive powder from within.

He was later arrested from a motel in Alabama.
