Busted. Attempted murder of a world leader. This guy is the perfect person to not be right now. He's going away for a very long time. See ya later, crocodile. Let's see what the black prison population thinks of him in there. i am i.q. and i approve this message.

TRUTH BE TOLD ....... I do really believe that the FBI has arrested the wrong guy? TRUTHFULLY .... This guy just doesn't look like the guy, (who has the time, or intelligence), to make Ricin. CONSPIRACY THEORIES? ..... Look to Obama and his CIA, as staging it .. as cover for the Libyan, North Korean, Middile East, North Africa, Iran, Syria, and the lost Afghan War disasters .. and the Obama killer drone bombings .. as reasons, for the Obama and CIA mailing of the Ricin .. as cover-up for all these Obama disasters? MY OPINION? .... They got the wrong guy. ---- he's being framed? --------------------------- REALLY
