From CNN in the USA:
Man pleads guilty in plot to go on ‘killing spree’ against blacks

* Daniel Cowart of Tennessee and Paul Schlesselman of Arkansas face prison time
* Pair conspired to kill more than 100 African-Americans, including Obama
* Men were arrested in October 2008 after an aborted robbery attempt
A Tennessee man accused of planning a “killing spree” against African-Americans in a 2008 plot that included then-presidential candidate Barack Obama as a target, pleaded guilty Monday to eight charges in connection with the crime, the U.S. Department of Justice said.
Daniel Cowart, 21, of Bells, Tennessee, admitted to conspiring with Paul Schlesselman of West Helena, Arkansas, in planning to kill more than 100 African-Americans, according to the Justice Department.
The two are self-described white supremacists who met online through a mutual friend, the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Jackson, Tennessee, said.
The men were arrested in October 2008 after an aborted robbery attempt outside Jackson, according to court records.
Cowart pleaded guilty Monday to threatening to kill and inflict bodily harm upon a presidential candidate, conspiracy, intentional damage to religious property, discharge of a firearm during and in relation to a crime of violence and multiple gun charges related to carrying a sawed-off shotgun across state lines.
Cowart’s co-conspirator Schlesselman pleaded guilty in January to conspiracy, threatening to kill and inflict bodily harm upon a presidential candidate and one count of possessing a firearm in furtherance of a crime of violence. He is scheduled to be sentenced April 15 and faces up to 10 years in prison.
The CNN report does not call these two nazis “terrorists”. One may ask, just like in the cases of the Texas Christian Rightist homophobes and the Michigan “Hutaree” violent gun nuts: is being Muslim, and/or being non-white, “preferably” both, really required before media dare to use the t-word?
