Government Foils Skinhead Plot to Assassinate Obama [court records unsealed just before elections]

Skinheads planned to kill Obama and 102 others in Tennessee.

Federal agents have disrupted a plot to assassinate Barack Obama and shoot or decapitate dozens of black students in Tennessee, the ATF said Monday. 

In court records unsealed Monday, federal agents said they disrupted plans to rob a gun store and target a predominantly African-American high school by two neo-Nazi skinheads. Agents said the skinheads did not identify the school by name. 

A source in the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives told FOX News that the two skinheads, who were picked up in Crockett County, Tenn., were plotting to shoot 88 black students and decapitate 14 others described as non-whites. The source said officials believe the suspects were planning to attempt an assassination against Obama. 

The numbers 88 and 14 are symbolic in the white supremacist community. 

But officials could not describe how advanced or credible the plot was, nor could they say if they had contacted the Obama campaign. 

Jim Cavanaugh, special agent in charge of the Nashville field office for the ATF, said the suspects also sought to go on a national killing spree, with Obama as its final target.

Bets on how long it takes to expose this as a fraud? I will place a bet of whatever, that the media will not report it when it is exposed.

Cavuto announced it, haven’t heard anymore. I see this as a ploy to gain sympathy for Obama.

Something smells.

MSNBC alert said it was a "skin head" plot. It was thwarted thank goodness.

However, I'm sure it will be covered 24/7 by the MSM. Ya know they way they do it when we have thwarted terrorist attacks. /sarc

Not an attempt. A plot, conspiracy involving skinheads, KKK.

This is breaking my smell-test device.

The only possible explanations are that (a) it was done by someone who really wants Obama to win, or (b) it was done by someone who has lost their mind.

Just breaking on FOX.

Was there a white Bronco involved? Or a dead blonde?

Have Greta or Geraldo run down old ladies in the street to cover the story first?

Have Major or Shep mussed up their hair?

Dear GOD, people, there are important issues involved here!

Personally I don’t doubt it. Most of us listening to “Reverend” Wright have felt a ton of anger at his racist ranting.

That sort of thing could incite a race war.

Drudge Headline:

what does ‘102 blacks disrupted’ mean?

Breitbart article is being slammed.
