“I have a cunning plan, m’lord…”

A Falls Church man has admitted to plotting with a Saudi Al Qaeda cell to assassinate President Bush.

Ahmed Omar Abu Ali says it never got past the “idea stage,” and it’s not hard to see why:

“My idea was . . . I would walk on the street as the President walked by, and I would get close enough to shoot him, or I would use a car bomb.”

Yeah. That would work. Just bump into ol’ Georgie on the street. Or park in front of his house.

Clearly, this is a guy who hasn’t been paying attention, or hadn’t spent much time outside of Falls Church…
