Texas ‘Terrorist’ Arrested For Posting Obama Death Threat

A Dallas man describing himself as a terrorist threatened to kill President Barack Obama in an online posting because he was upset about health care reform, according to a criminal complaint.

Brian Dean Miller, 43, faces one count of making threats against the president, which carries a maximum sentence of five years in prison and a $250,000 fine. He is scheduled for arraignment in federal court Friday.

His public defender and his mother did not return phone messages Thursday.

According to a criminal complaint, Miller made the death threats March 21 on Craigslist under a posting titled “Obama must die.” The posting said he was following through on a promise to become a terrorist if the federal health care bill passed.
