Federal agents have broken up a plot by two neo-Nazi skinheads to assassinate Barack Obama and shoot or decapitate 88 black people, the AP reports. ATF agents said the pair planned to rob a gun store and target a predominantly African-American high school in a murder spree that was to begin in Tennessee, with Obama as its final target.
"They said that would be their last, final act—that they would attempt to kill Sen. Obama,” an ATF agent said. “They didn't believe they would be able to do it, but that they would get killed trying.” The Crockett County, Tenn., sheriff's office arrested the men, who are 18 and 20 years old, on Wednesday. They are being held without bond.
