FBI logo

According to the FBI, Everitt Aaron Jameson, 26, told an undercover FBI agent Christmas Day was the "perfect day" for an attack on Fisherman's Wharf. Jameson allegedly said Pier 39, a popular tourist destination, was a good location for an attack and planned to use explosives to herd people toward where he could kill them.

Jameson also told the undercover agent he wanted to use explosives to "tunnel or "funnel" people into a location where he could inflict casualties, according to the complaint".

"Jameson also stated that Christmas was the flawless day to commit the attack", the documents read. They add that he was arrested earlier this week and a search warrant was executed at his Modesto home. "May Allah grant him Jannah firtuidus Amin", he said of New York City truck terrorist Sayfullo Saipov, indicating that he hoped Saipov would enter paradise as a reward for attacking the infidels.

In subsequent communications with an undercover agent, he referred to his training in the US military and noted he had been trained for combat and war.

Jameson was discharged from the US Marine Corps about 2009 because he didn't tell the truth about his history with asthma, documents state.

The FBI said he had embraced "radical jihadi beliefs" and posted pro-ISIS items on social media. After the call, Jameson apparently suspected he was under surveillance and wrote to the undercover operative "I also don't think I can do this after all".

The multi-year agreement will be expanded later to include Facebook Messenger, Universal Music Group , according to Reuters . Facebook , based in Menlo Park, Calif., is trying to get people to watch and share more videos on its platform.

The agent said Jameson wanted to do a combination of the two attacks, referring to the use of firearms and vehicles.

"Thanks to the diligent efforts of the Federal Bureau of Investigation and local law enforcement agencies, a planned attack has been prevented from occurring in our city", Acting Mayor London Breed said in a statement Friday. Everitt Jameson of Modesto was reported for suspicious activity on Facebook after allegedly posting GIFs from October's fatal attack in New York City.

"You all have brought this upon yourselves", the note said. Each and every Kuffar in this Nationalistic, Godless society has a hand in this.

The FBI criminal complaint says that Mr Jameson's letter made reference to Donald Trump's decision to designate Jerusalem as the capital of Israel. "Both you and he are wrong, it belongs to the [Muslims]". They found a a couple of.45-caliber magazines, a Rugers model M77 and a Winchester 22. caliber rifle, ammunitions and some fireworks. We have penetrated and infiltrated your disgusting country.

Dar al Islam means the "house of Islam".

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.
