    No offense intended here, but that's one out how many?????

    I don't like the man, but no one deserves to be assassinated.

    Me either, I am simply stating what the news just put out. The skinheads are a radical group and there is no place in society fit for the likes of them as much as I despise Obama

    This is sounding more like a press release as it goes on.

    The news comes "out of a courtroom"

    The plan was to shoot up a high school and kill a bunch of black students.

    And also to supposedly assasinate Obama.

    Sounds to me like a bunch of wet behind the ears pimple faced punks shooting off their mouth.

    Bet they make a bunch of hay out of it, though.

    Government Foils Skinhead Plot to Assassinate Obama

    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.

    "They said that would be their last, final act -- that they would attempt to kill Sen. Obama," Cavanaugh said. "They didn't believe they would be able to do it, but that they would get killed trying."

    Obama spokesman Bill Burton said the campaign would have no comment on the alleged plot.

    The men, Daniel Cowart, 20, of Bells, Tenn., and Paul Schlesselman 18, of West Helena, Ark., are being held without bond. Agents seized a rifle, a sawed-off shotgun and three pistols from the men when they were arrested. Authorities alleged the two men were preparing to break into a gun shop to steal more.

    Attorney Joe Byrd, who has been hired to represent Cowart, did not immediately return a call seeking comment Monday.

    Cowart and Schlesselman are charged with possessing an unregistered firearm, conspiring to steal firearms from a federally licensed gun dealer, and threatening a candidate for president.

    FOX News' Catherine Herridge and The Associated Press contributed to this report.

    Ages 18 & 20. I am sure a real threat. Looks like the ATF grabbing headlines.

    You NEVER hear about the REAL threats. That is the way it SHOULD be and the way it IS.

    When you know that the "media" would HOUND your agency to find out EVERY detail of a real threat, how you discovered it, and how you derailed it, you don't advertise that you have stopped it. When asked about it, you deny even that it ever existed. That keeps all the other nutjobs from trying to copy it.

    Federal agencies only let you know what THEY want you to know.

    Me thinks these two neo nutjobs wanted a little youtube time.

    Capable of shooting 88 people and beheading 14 more? No.

    Assasinating a candidate? Highly unlikely but not impossible if either were willing to die trying.

    Two guys that somehow could not keep this "secret" plot secret? That does seem to indicate a rather high degree of stupidity and ineptness don't you think?

    On the bright side....at least a GUN wasn't used giving the media another opportunity to assault private ownership of firearms. Who cares WHO they are, or their ages. Thankfully the "plot" is a lot more benign a news story than a MASSACRE or assasination attempt.

    I'm kind of surprised it was a skinhead plan. Seems to me Obama is more like them and they would support him.

    You mean the fictitious church burnings aren't enough to stir things up this time? Where are these skinheads anyway? Are they anywhere besides on TV?

    ROFLMAO.

    Sorry folks but here is the "Assasination Plan"

    "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." "

    And the ATF brags about thwarting this goofy plan?

    Some other rank amateur nut cases who were too young, inexperienced, stupid, or deranged to be a credible threat:

    Lynette Fromme

    John Hinckley

    Timothy McVeigh & Terry Nichols

    Guiseppe Zangara

    Eric Harris & Dylan Klebold

    Sueng-Hui Cho

    (I left Lee Harvey out because I'm trying to not leave room for you conspiracy theorists to hijack the thread - lol)

    I'm not saying the neo-Nazi's are the brightest bunch in the world, but if they were planning this and got arrested, then kudos to the agencies responsible. Perhaps the lack of press means they are still looking for some of these idiots? Or perhaps the feds have sources they don't want to burn? I'm not a particular fan of the FBI, but this arrest was certainly worthwhile.

    Flame away.

    They doubtlessly should have been arrested but not presented as credible threats.

    How politically convenient on the timing before a probable fatal change in our country's government...something smells bad about this story. Two low life aholes make a few claims and poof...it's big news and the Feds can stroke themselves for having stopped it. Hell, looks like they picked some low hanging fruit and called a press conference to announce what detectives they are. Maybe the top Fed guy got the word to create a little diversion away from the socialist...totally possible.
    Maybe the Feds in their spare time can dig up the real facts on Ayers and prosecute the prick...nah, not politically correct. Something is really going on in this country to keep us away from the powers behind nobama. I have never seen such lack of investigation and apathy in this country in my 50 plus years. Not prone to conspiracy theories, but something is just not adding up.
