Awhile ago, one of my freinds who was in bootcamp, prob in 2005. Told me of a story that did not make it into the major news. It was of an assassination attempt on president bush, while he was giving a speech. The grenade was a dud. He told me of how he and the others got called down to a meeting, and the instructor, read of the assassination attempt in a news letter, to let them know of a possible war. It was by a russian terroist.
I am wondering if the military people on here, have heard about this. And wish to inform the others on this board.

EDIT: Some grammactical errors.

Im pretty sure that "attempt" was just a dud hand grenade found within a couple hundred meters of the president. Im also pretty sure it took place in Georgia not in the US

Hello ATS, my first post.

I was able to track down some info on this event.

"On May 10 (2005), Arutyunyan threw a hand grenade wrapped in a handkerchief at the U.S. President as the latter addressed the Tbilisi crowd. No explosion ensued, though the grenade, as forensic experts found out later, was no dummy and failed to go off only by a lucky accident."

"Moscow sources say Russian intelligence had warned Georgian security forces that they should anticipate a terrorist attack but the Georgians failed to forward the warning to the United States. "
