An elderly man who wrote in a letter to the editor about Saddam Hussein’s execution that “they hanged the wrong man” got a visit from Secret Service agents concerned he was threatening President Bush.
The letter by Dan Tilli, 81, was published in Monday’s edition of The Express-Times of Easton, Pa. It ended with the line, “I still believe they hanged the wrong man.”
Tilli said the statement was not a threat. “I didn’t say who Ã¢â‚¬â€ I could’ve meant (Osama) bin Laden,” he said Friday.
