You just knew we couldn’t get through the holidays without some threat of terror from ISIS. In San Fransisco the FBI was on top of the situation and took a man into custody before the worst could happen.
ABC News has the story:
Officials say Everitt Aaron Jameson ultimately said he didn’t want to go through with it, after an FBI employee accidentally called his phone with an identifiable Washington D.C.-based phone number. The bureau didn’t believe him, searched his home and found weapons and a martyrdom note referring to President Donald Trump.
Jameson posted radical jihadist messages online and offered to use his employer-provided tow truck for the “cause,” according to a criminal complaint filed by an FBI agent. In 2009, he attended basic recruit training for the Marine Corps and later graduated with a “sharpshooter” qualification, but he was discharged for fraudulent enlistment because he failed to disclose a history of asthma.
He also voiced support for the Halloween Day truck attack in New York which killed eight people.
… FBI raided his home in Modesto on Dec. 20. They found the martyrdom letter he left behind, and also found several firearms. During the raid, Jameson told the FBI of his support for ISIS and his plan for attack, noting that he would be happy if an attack was carried out.
Let’s hope that’s the last of the terrorism plots on American soil during the holidays or ever for that matter.
