Barack Hussein Obama, the 44th president of the United States of America, will visit Jamaica next week and his security forces are already beefing up in the Caribbean island.
Hype Life Magazine understands that at least 4 US military aircraft landed at the Norman Manley International Airport in Kingston earlier today (April 3rd), as part of preparatory activities for the pending visit of Barack Obama.
The aircrafts have been arriving since earlier this week and more are expected to fly in, over the coming days, to Senior Director of Commercial Development and Planning at the NMIA Alfred McDonald.
Mr. McDonald says while he is aware that the aircraft are associated with the pending visit of the US President, he is unable to say who traveled to the island on them.
Its reported that their main aim is to secure all locations that the president is expected to visit.
The arrival of the US military aircraft caused a buzz of activity on social media, with several blogs indicating that they took in FBI and CIA agents.
Word in the streets is that President recently booked out an entire Kingston hotel to accommodate his stay.
President Obama is expected to arrive in Jamaica on April 8, ahead of his official visit on April 9, which includes meetings with government officials such as Prime Minister Portia Simpson Miller.
Today Jamaica and much of the Caribbean seem to be in the backyard of communist China, and the visit next week of the 44th president of the USA for a meeting with CARICOM leaders may seek to realign the region along the lines of the Monroe Doctrine.
