UPDATE: GO HERE for more info and an interesting analysis. Including a discussion of “why 88?” and “why 14?”

As reported by MSNBC:
Law enforcement agents have broken up a plot by two neo-Nazi skinheads to assassinate Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama and shoot or decapitate 88 black people, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives said Monday.
In court records unsealed Monday in U.S. District Court in Jackson, Tenn., federal agents said they disrupted plans to rob a gun store and target a predominantly African-American high school in a murder spree that was to begin in Tennessee. Agents said the skinheads did not identify the school by name.
Jim Cavanaugh, special agent in charge of ATF’s Nashville field office, said the two men planned to kill 88 African Americans, including 14 by beheading. The numbers 88 and 14 are symbolic in the white supremacist community.
PZ Myers has pointed out on Pharyngula that no where in this discussion is the word Terrorist being used. This is obviously because these are white boys, and the intended victims are all African Americans. We don’t call that terrorism in America. We call it business as usual. Terrorism is when brown or brownish people attack white people, or in some cases, just look at them funny.
