(WASHINGTON, DC) – An Idaho Falls man charged with attempting to assassinate President Barack Obama in 2011 reportedly planned the attack for months. 22-year-old Oscar Ortega-Hernandez fired at least five shots at the White House while the president was out of town. Ortega-Hernandez says he was upset about the president’s strong position on the criminalization of marijuana, and wanted to make a political statement. Prosecutors say the man practiced shooting outside his home for several months prior to the attack.
