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.
The plot leaders decided the pair would "not be able to handle" the killings, which were called "bonus jobs," the indictment states.

Hunter, a resident of Thailand, was arrested Thursday in Bangkok
Maybe if they were pushing the "ex-military shouldn't have weapons" thing....
