Dallas Man Pleads Guilty To Obama Threat

A Dallas man has pleaded guilty to posting on the Internet a threat to kill President Barack Obama.
Brian Dean Miller could be sentenced to up to five years in federal prison and fined up to $250,000 after entering his plea in a federal court in Dallas on Tuesday. U.S. Attorney’s spokeswoman Kathy Colvin says the 43-year-old man remains in the federal detention center in Seagoville pending sentencing later this year.
A posting titled “Obama must die” turned up on a Craigslist site on March 21, the night Congress passed a health care overhaul bill. The posting said Miller was following through on his vow to become a terrorist if the federal health care bill passed.
Miller was located via his e-mail address. He was living with his mother.

    Not a very smart “terrorist” who telegraphs his intentions on Craigslist!

    After the oil spill in the Gulf, caused by people in Houston, the political discourse and
    corruption of Tom Delay, the many cases of brutality by police throughout the state, the
    shooting of Kennedy, the cooperate malfeasance of business like Enron, and idiots
    like this clown, I think terrorism has found an accepting home in Texas, whether environmental,
    political, state sponsored, corporate, or individual terrorism.
