After information surfaced, the question begged: How serious of a threat were these guys? Some say not much.

WASHINGTON – Two alleged skinheads were charged Monday in a far-fetched plot to launch a “killing spree” aimed at beheading black students and then shooting Barack Obama.
The racist teens demonstrated little supremacy in their nutty plan to “dress in white tuxedos and wear top hats during the assassination attempt,” the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives said.
A federal official told the Daily News: “It was only aspirational.”
Daniel Cowart, 20, of Bells, Tenn., and Paul Schlesselman, 18, of West Helena, Ark., wanted to steal weapons from a gun store and shoot at the black Democratic presidential nominee from their car while driving toward Obama at high speed. They were to bankroll the plot by robbing a house, but got scared off by a dog, court papers said.
