Sirens are flashing on Drudge and the AP has a one liner. More news as it develops.

The ATF says it has broken up a plot to assassinate Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama and shoot or decapitate 102 black people in a Tennessee murder spree.
In court records unsealed Monday, agents said they disrupted plans to rob a gun store and target an unnamed but predominantly African-American high school by two neo-Nazi skinheads.
I wouldn’t surprised if these guys turn out to be a couple of slack-jawed meth-heads (aren’t all skinheads?) with little or no chance of actually pulling this off. These stories are often over-hyped. We’ll see.

In the ATF affidavit, a copy of which you’ll find below, Cowart and Schlesselman “discussed the killing spree to include targeting a predominately African-American school, going state to state while robbing individuals and continuing to kill people.” The pair’s “final act of violence” would be an attempt to kill Obama, the Democratic presidential nominee. In separate interviews with investigators, the men said that they planned to speed their vehicle toward Obama while “shooting at him from the windows.” Apparently befitting the historic assault, Cowart and Schlesselman “stated they would dress in all white tuxedos and wear top hats during the assassination attempt.” The wannabe assassins were named in a three-count federal felony complaint, a copy of which you’ll find here.
Props to the ATF for getting these fashion-challenged morons off the street but it doesn’t appear that Obama was ever seriously threatened by these two. They would have been dead long before their fantasy finale played out.
