Man planned to target San Francisco in Christmas day terror attack

Everitt Jameson allegedly expressed support for jihadists on social media before planning a suicide attack in San Francisco FBI Arrests Man For Alleged Pier 39 Christmas Day Terror Plot

The FBI said he eventually began talking about attacking Pier 39 in San Francisco, a popular tourist attraction, because he knew it to be a crowded area.

Jameson "identified a possible target location, noting that the best place would be a large area such as San Francisco", according to the court document.

The FBI contends that when Jameson met with undercover agents December 16, it was under the guise that he was making contact with high-level ISIS leadership.

On Nov. 2, after the Halloween attack in NY in which eight people died when a rented truck was used to kill pedestrians on a jogging path, Jameson told the informant, "I'm glad to know we Muslims are finally hitting back".

Authorities say firearms, a will and a letter claiming the attack were found during a search of his home.

Jameson offered to use his tow truck to support the cause, the affidavit says.

Jameson allegedly told the agents that he needed ammunition, powder, tubing and nails.

He discussed how he would execute the attack, noting that he would be happy if an attack was carried out.

Investigators said he told them he had the money it would take to go to Syria to join ISIS but later he began to talk about carrying out some kind of attack in the USA, using skills he learned in the Marine Corps. He also apparently had a "sharpshooter" rifle qualification.

Data requests from India escalate in 1st half of 2017:Facebook

Jameson told the informant that he was a soldier in the "Kuffar army" before he reverted and that he was trained in combat and things of war. On Wednesday, the Federal Bureau of Investigation conducted a raid of Jameson's home and found a stockpile of weapons as well as the suicide note.

The FBI says he wanted to use explosives to "funnel" people into a location where he could inflict casualties. He soon told an undercover agent that "I also don't think I can do this after all".

The affidavit says he said Christmas Day would be the ideal day for an attack.

Dar al Islam means the "house of Islam".

"[God willing], one day I can", Jameson added.

During the search, Federal Bureau of Investigation agents interviewed Jameson, who stated his support of ISIS and terrorism and discussed aspects of the plan to carry out an attack, noting that he would be happy if an attack happened, the affidavit said.

Attorney General Jeff Sessions applauded law enforcement officials in a statement Friday.

An FBI spokeswoman says that there now is no specific or credible threat to the San Francisco Bay Area. "We will remain vigilant and continue to protect our city from any threat".
