Obama Assassination Plot Foiled

Another Obama assassination plot has been foiled.
Two white supremacists allegedly plotted to go on a national killing spree, shooting and decapitating black people and ultimately targeting Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama, federal authorities said Monday.

In all, the two men whom officials described as neo-Nazi skinheads planned to kill 88 people - 14 by beheading, according to documents unsealed in U.S. District Court in Jackson, Tenn. The numbers 88 and 14 are symbolic in the white supremacist community.

The spree, which initially targeted an unidentified predominantly African-American school, was to end with the two men driving toward Obama, "shooting at him from the windows," the documents show. "Both individuals stated they would dress in all-white tuxedos and wear top hats during the assassination attempt," the court complaint states. "Both individuals further stated they knew they would and were willing to die during this attempt."
The number 88 is used by neo-Nazis to represent the words "Heil Hitler" as H is the eighth letter of the alphabet. The number 14 refers to David Lane's 14-word quote: "We must secure the existence of our people and a future for white children."

And of course, the wingnuts are already screaming that these arrests are phony and the timing of yesterday's announcement was meant to bolster Obama at the polls. "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."
