This story broke less than an hour ago.

Federal agents have bro­ken up a plot to assas­si­nate Democratic pres­i­den­tial can­di­date Barack Obama and shoot or decap­i­tate 102 black peo­ple in a Tennessee mur­der spree, 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.

One won­ders if this is in “retal­i­a­tion” for the attack-that-wasn’t this week­end on a McCain cam­paign worker, or if these bas­tards are just plain nuck­ing futs.1

Jim Cavanaugh, spe­cial agent in charge of the Nashville field office for the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, said the two men planned to shoot 88 black peo­ple and decap­i­tate another 14. The num­bers 88 and 14 are sym­bolic in the white suprema­cist community.

The men also sought to go on a national killing spree, with Obama as its final tar­get, Cavanaugh told The Associated Press.

I won­der how they’ll get along with the other Guantanamo detainees? Because this is as clear-​​cut a case of intended domes­tic ter­ror­ism as any­thing I’ve seen in quite a while.
