See my prior post, Friday, October 17, 2008, BILL AYERS & BERNARDINE DOHRN ARE AN INTRICATE PART OF BARACK OBAMA'S INNER CIRCLE IN CHICAGO, THEY ARE ALSO TERRORISTS.
President-elect Barack Obama's Chicago neighborhood has become a very different place to live now that Secret Service agents have turned the once easy-going area into a virtual fortress to protect the next president, The Times of London reported.
Assassination fears surrounding Obama, codenamed "Renegade" by his security on the campaign trail, mean that he may become the most heavily guarded president in history.After months of shaking hands with strangers, the President-elect delivered his victory speech from behind bulletproof glass in Chicago's Grant Park.
Streets around his mock-Georgian mansion in enclave by the University of Chicago have been closed. The main thoroughfare has been shut down because it passes his yard. Visitors to the synagogue that faces his house must put their names on a list 24 hours before they attend so that their identities can be checked.
Prior to the 2008 Presidential election, the Secret Service generally protected major candidates over the 120 days preceding an election. On May 3, 2007, the Secret Service announced that Senator Barack Obama would also have protection following a request from Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, due in part to racially motivated threats against the candidate.
Mr Obama is an undeniable target in a country with more than 200 million registered firearms which has seen the assassination of four presidents – Abraham Lincoln, James Garfield, William McKinley and John F. Kennedy. Eight others have survived attempts on their lives. “The protective-security threat and the challenges surrounding the protection for him is extremely difficult. It’s going to take a lot of resources and a tremendous amount of protective and tactical analysis to stay ahead of the bad guys,” said Fred Burton, vice-president of counter-terrorism at Stratfor, a geopolitical intelligence analysis firm.
"I live one block away. I get carded to go on my block," said Adrienne Stone, 33, a U.S. Air Force veteran. "I have become accustomed to the Secret Service being everywhere. I don't get a lot of sleep. There are helicopters overhead. But he deserves this. We have lost too many leaders before their time," she said.
Sergeant McDonnell, Officer Brown, and Sergeant O’Grady were just three of over a dozen law enforcement officers killed by radical, domestic terrorist groups during the 1970s and 1980s. Their memories may be forgotten by those who killed them and walk free – whether through lack of arrest and prosecution in McDonnell’s case or having served their sentences in Brown’s and O’Grady’s cases – but they will never be forgotten by their brothers and sisters in law enforcement.
Bernardine Dohrn (Bill Ayres wife), was once labeled “the most dangerous woman in America” by none other than J. Edgar Hoover and Dohrn proclaimed, “I consider myself a revolutionary Communist”. .
