Assassination Attempt in Columbia?

According to this story from the AP, FARC was said to have called for an attack on Bush while he was in Columbia:


BOGOTA, Colombia -- Colombia's main rebel group asked followers to mount an assassination attempt against President Bush during his visit to Colombia last week, Defense Minister Jorge Uribe said. There was no evidence Saturday that rebels even tried to organize such an attack.

Uribe told reporters late Friday that informants said the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia, known as the FARC, told followers to attack Bush during his four-hour visit in the seaside city of Cartagena last Monday, where he met with Colombian President Alvaro Uribe.

Certainly puts Bush's reaction to the incident in Chile in a new perspective. One has to assume the President has been fully briefed on all and any manner of threats against him, and that being said there may be more to this Powerline post I had previously mentioned. Very bad.

There was no plot to assassinate President Bush. The Defense Minister was just shooting off his mouth and has recanted with those classic weasel worlds "misspoke" and "misunderstood."
