London, Jan 20 (ANI): Barack Obama, who will become the 44th President of the US today, is the biggest ever assassination target in American history.
According to the Daily Star, the 47-year-old has taken the responsibility of doing the most important job in the world, which is to save the global economy from meltdown, but it is also the most dangerous.
He will enter the White House as the first black president knowing that white supremacists have vowed to kill him.
And therefore, security-surrounding Obama has been stepped up.
CIA chiefs are throwing a ring of steel around his inauguration to make sure he does not meet the same fate as assassinated 1960s president John F Kennedy.
They have turned Washington DC into an impenetrable fortress for the historic ceremony. It will be guarded by 45,000 soldiers, police, secret agents and National Guards.
Jet fighters will also be on standby for the ceremony.
Obama will be protected behind bullet-proof glass and ride in a bomb-proof limo with the Ku Klux Klan, neo-Nazis and al-Qaida all gunning for him.
US military leaders have tried to cater for every possible type of terror strike from a gunman to a chemical attack.
Intelligence chiefs, who have reported a huge increase in threats running up to inauguration day, have placed snipers on every rooftop around Washing-ton's Lincoln Memorial and Capitol Hill, where Obama will deliver his first speech as US head of state.
Leaders of the racist KKK have issued a call for members to wear black armbands and fly the US flag upside down in protest at him taking office.
And FBI assistant director Joe Persichini confirmed the white supremacy movement is itching to take out Obama.
"We have seen a lot of chatter. We have seen a lot of discussions and we have seen some information via the Internet," Persichini said. (ANI)
