The UK Telegraph is reporting that US government agents have thwarted a plan by two conspirators to kill Barack Obama and shoot or decapitate 102 black people. How crazy is this?
Daniel Cowart, 20, and Paul Schlesselman, 18, were arrested in Tennessee on Wednesday and charged with possession of firearms, threats against a presidential candidate running and conspiring to rob a gun store, the Department of Justice said. The plot is understood to centre on Tennessee where Martin Luther King was assassinated exactly 40 years ago.
Details of the conspiracy were contained in court records unsealed on Monday by members of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives – America’s specialist law enforcement agency. ATF agents said they disrupted plans by white supremacists to rob a firearms store and attack a predominantly black school.
According to the ATF, the men planned to go on a killing spree across the United States with Barack Obama, the Democratic nominee as their final target. Lets hope they lock these two up for a long time!
Details of the alleged plot emerged just before Mr Obama arrived in Pittsburgh for a campaign rally after an earlier visit to Canton, Ohio. Source: Uk Telegraph
