The World Is On Red-Alert Because Of Increased Online Chatter From ISIS Demanding Christmas-Day Slaughter But This Latest Bust Was Too Close For Comfort.
Thanks to FBI undercover Agents, this Ex-United States Marine, Everitt Aaron Jameson’s Christmas-Day terrorist attack was unfoiled. The young man planned to blow up a popular tourist destination in San Francisco, reportedly telling one agent he didn’t have an exit strategy because he planned to die as many suicide-bomber have before him. The ex-Marine shows absolutely no remorse in his affidavit.
This is just chilling tail happening world-wide as we approach Christmas. Global efforts to foil lone-wolf would-be attackers are underway but the FBI is urging the public to report any and all suspicious behavior. Take a look.
A Northern California tow-truck driver is accused of planning an ISIS-inspired Christmas Day suicide attack on Fisherman’s Wharf in San Francisco.
Everitt Aaron Jameson, 26, was arrested and charged Friday with one count of attempting to provide material support to a foreign terrorist organization.
In a statement, Acting San Francisco Mayor London Breed credited the “diligent efforts of the FBI and local law enforcement agencies” for thwarting the planned attack and announced that the San Francisco Police Department would have an increased presence throughout the city.
“San Francisco is a city that proudly champions democracy, freedom and liberty,” Breed said. “Sadly, that makes our home a target. We will not allow the thwarted attempts of one dangerous individual to disrupt our way of life. We will remain vigilant and continue to protect our city from any threat.”
A spokeswoman for the FBI’s San Francisco field office said in a statement that there was “no specific and credible threat to the Bay Area at this time” and “the public was never in imminent danger.”
Jameson denied the allegations during a hearing in federal court Friday.
His father, Gordon Jameson, said he believes the FBI has the facts wrong.
“He wouldn’t do that to innocent people,” the elder Jameson told the Merced Sun-Star . “He’s a loving, kind person that would never hurt nobody.”
In an 11-page affidavit filed in federal court in Fresno Friday, FBI special agent Christopher McKinney alleged that Jameson espoused “radical jihadi beliefs” on social media. According to the agent, Jameson “liked” and “loved” ISIS-related social media posts, including one that threatened a Christmas attack in New York City.
