DENVER (Reuters) – Authorities on Tuesday were investigating whether three men arrested in Colorado with guns and drugs planned to kill Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama, but said they posed no real threat.

“We’re absolutely confident there is no credible threat to the candidate, the Democratic National Convention (in Denver), or the people of Colorado,” U.S. Attorney Troy Eid said in a statement.

ABC News quoted federal law enforcement officials saying the men, one of whom is alleged to have strong ties to a white supremacist gang, had admitted to a “crude” plan to use a rifle to kill Obama. Local media had reported the incident on Monday.


ABC News said the men had spoken of finding a high vantage point overlooking the football stadium, Invesco Field, in Denver where Obama is due to speak to the Democratic convention on Thursday night, and opening fire with scope-equipped rifles.
