Two former U.S. Army snipers, including a 20-year veteran labeled a "contract killer," and a retired German sharpshooter have been charged
with plotting the murders-for-hire of an American drug agent and an informant in Africa, the Justice Department announced Friday.
The planned assassinations, which were never carried out, were part of a conspiracy to fly hundreds of kilograms of coc aine into the United
States from Colombian drug traffickers who were actually confidential sources for the Drug Enforcement Administration.
Okay, call me crazy, if you'd like (I promise it won't offend me
) but could this be another example to be used to implement anti-gun laws? It's
strikingly similar to what occurred at the Navy Yard shootings, minus the fact that the plan was not carried out. The news story said that:
The plot leaders decided the pair would "not be able to handle" the killings, which were called "bonus jobs," the indictment
However, for someone who was a "sniper instructor" who had "killed a number of people" . . . this story just smells fishy to me. What could have been
the cause that stopped them from completing their mission?
