Some sites, including the Huffington Post, covered the incident but failed to highlight the importance of it all.

When a member of the military, no matter how low in rank, plans and prepares for the assassination of the president and the takeover of his base, the American people need to be thoroughly informed and we need to start asking questions concerning such an issue.
