Man Held Over Christmas Attack Plot in San Francisco

San Francisco ISIS Terrorist Attack Thwarted

A Northern California man was arrested this week and accused of planning an ISIS-inspired Christmas Day suicide attack on Fisherman's Wharf in San Francisco.

Criminal documents allege he planned to target the Pier 39 area, popular with tourists in the city.

Authorities say Jameson told an undercover Federal Bureau of Investigation agent he planned on targeting the heavily-crowded Pier 39 on Christmas, which he described as the "perfect day" for an attack, court documents showed.

Prosecutors say Jameson apparently wanted to detonate the explosives to funnel people into an area where he could inflict more casualties.

Jameson also allegedly stated that "Christmas was the ideal day" to commit the attack and that he did not need an escape plan because he was "ready to die".

The terror plot seemed to unravel earlier this week.

The suspect's home in Modesto, California, was raided by Federal Bureau of Investigation agents on Wednesday, where they allegedly found his last will and testament along with several weapons and ammunition.

Jameson said the USA needed "another attack like NY or San Bernardino", adding that he wanted to use vehicles and firearms to carry out an attack. A note he evidently intended for publication after the attack swore allegiance to ISIS and cited President Donald Trump's recognition of Jerusalem as the capital of Israel as a reason for his actions. The FBI says he sought materials that could be made into a pipe bomb from an agent.

"We are grateful that our hardworking law enforcement partners remain vigilant in protecting our communities, especially during this holiday season", U.S. Attorney Phillip Talbert said in a statement.

According to the FBI, Jameson was a voracious consumer of Islamic State propaganda online, and wrote numerous "social media posts that are supportive of terrorism". "I'm ready." He also said that he took his shahada proving that he was believer two years at the Merced Islamic Center. You all have brought this upon yourselves. According to the informant, Jameson "loved" a Facebook post on November 29 that showed an image of Santa standing in NY with a box of dynamite and a messages that read, "ISIS post image of Santa with dynamite threatening attack on NY".

Jameson told the agent that they needed something along the lines of the NY truck attack or the 2015 terror attack in San Bernardino.

"I'm glad to know we Muslims are finally hitting back", Jameson told the informant. Each and every Kuffar in this Nationalistic, Godless society has a hand in this. They found the martyrdom letter he left behind, and also found several firearms. We have penetrated and infiltrated your disgusting country.

Jameson also signed the letter "Abdallah abu Everitt ibn Gordon al-Amriki", an Arabicized version of his name.

Sarah Jameson said that the family had been OK with her nephew converting to Islam, although they had joked with him about "blowing things up".
