Was there a plot to kill Bush in Chile?
Geopolitical expert Jack Wheeler describes disturbing security stare down

Dr. Jack Wheeler, creator of a unique intelligence website dubbed "the oasis for rational conservatives," features a column describing what could have turned into a deadly scenario in Chile for President Bush.

On his website, To the Point, Wheeler tells a little-known story about a conflict between Bush's security detail and Chile's security over the latter's refusal to have a metal-detector at a state dinner for the president. There is speculation, Wheeler points out, that Bush-loathing Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez, a chum of Fidel Castro, is somehow connected to the incident.
Writes Wheeler: "The attempt was a clear double-cross, because all security arrangements are made and agreed upon for the POTUS (President of the United States) between the Secret Service and host country security well in advance and etched in stone. The Chilean police knew and agreed that Trotta would be with the president, yet they blocked him in a complete surprise.

"Far worse than this was Chilean President Lagos' refusal to have guests at a State Dinner go through a metal detector. No one attends a function with the POTUS, either here in the U.S. or anywhere in the world, without going through a metal detector, and this was agreed to way beforehand in Santiago. At the last moment, Lagos refuses then cancels the dinner when the Secret Service wont budge."

The attempt was a clear double-cross, because all security arrangements are made and agreed upon for the POTUS (President of the United States)

SANTIAGO, Chile (AP) - President Bush stepped into the middle of a confrontation and pulled his lead Secret Service agent away from Chilean security officials who barred his bodyguards from entering an elegant dinner for 21 world leaders Saturday night.

Several Chilean and American agents got into a pushing and shoving match outside the cultural center where the dinner was held. The incident happened after Bush and his wife, Laura, had just posed for pictures on a red carpet with the host of the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation summit, Chilean President Ricardo Lagos and his wife, Luisa Duran.

As Bush stepped inside, Chilean agents closed ranks at the door, blocking the president's agents from following. Stopping for more pictures, Bush noticed the fracas and turned back. He reached through the dispute and pulled his agent from the scrum and into the building.

The president, looking irritated, straightened his shirt cuffs as he went into the dinner. The incident was shown on APEC television.

``Chilean security tried to stop the president's Secret Service from accompanying him,'' said White House deputy press secretary Claire Buchan. ``He told them they were with him and the issue was resolved.''

Wow George, Nice Job! You damn sure aint no chicken#!
I bet the Secret Service was like "Oh #!" Get the F5^& back here George!

Good Job GW!

IDIOT!


I think he did the right thing, I mean the guy had no reason to hold Bush's guard back, and Bush took care of business and was even able to laugh about it.

He can do no right in your eyes anyway. WTF?

I dont like Bush but he stepped in to defuse a volatile situation. Kudos to him.

edsinger some people are never going to like any of Bush actions no matter what he does. He could save 5 orphans and a Kitten from a burning building and people what still hate him and his actions.

These also often seem to be the same people that love Clinton no matter what he does. He could smoke crack in public and some people we be like thats our bill keeping it real

A man of extreme stupidity more like.

I'll bet the secret service reprimanded him for this.

Shows his inability to control his emotions and his power trip.

Regardless of what you may think of Bush, he stepped into a situation that could have very escalated rapidly into gunfire how many other Presidents would have done that? Honestly..........

I don't like Bush at all but kudos to him, I respect what he did. Reminds me when Chretien put a chokehold on a demonstrator.

Seize any opportunity for a chance at propaganda.

Honestly, there are some members on ATS who have nothing to say but beat up on Bush. Would one of these people please tell us how they would have dealt with the situation. I think from my experience in the diplomatic and political fields that this was an unbelievable incident displaying total loyality to his staff.

APPLAUSE FOR THE PRESIDENT!

Really though, it does exemplify his tendency to do whatever he wants, no matter who it may hurt, even himself.

YOu just wont give up will you? HE DID THE RIGHT THING! HE CALMED A SITUATION THAT NEEDED CALMING.

The freaks outside demostrating could have stayed at home instead of making asses of themselves and this probably would not have been an issue.

Bush comes from a prominent family, presidents, heads of state, governors, etc. He grew up in this ambiance and should know about protocol. It is not presidential to act this way, and it doesnt become him at all. Sort of like the pope taking a swing at someone in a crowd.
For christs sake, this is the leader of the free world. Act like it.

There seems to be a leap in logic, please walk me through the steps to arriving at this conclusion?
