Obama Assassination Attempt
An Obama assassination attempt has been disrupted by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms (ATF.)
The plot by two neo-Nazi skinheads included assassinating Barack Obama and and then shooting or decapitating 102 African Americans, the ATF reported.
According to court documents, the pair discussed a “killing spree to include targeting a predominantly African-American school … they further stated that their final act of violence would be to attempt to kill/assassinate presidential candidate Barack Obama.”
The two in custody are Daniel Cowart, 20, and Paul Schlesselman 18 from Tennessee. Photos provided to the press (including the shot above) show Cowart with a Swastika tattoo and firearm. Agents seized a rifle, a sawed-off shotgun and three pistols from the men.
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.
