Former US Marine Arrested For Allegedly Planning San Francisco Attack

Former US Marine Arrested For Allegedly Planning San Francisco Attack

A Modesto man plotting a terror attack on Pier 39 has been arrested and charged with attempting to provide material support to a foreign terrorist organization.

The FBI began investigating in mid-September when it learned that Jameson was expressing support for posts that favoured terrorism or the Islamic State group. Jameson said he also wanted to use explosives and that Christmas Day would be the flawless day.

Two days prior to the raid, an Federal Bureau of Investigation employee accidentally called Jameson's cellphone number from a Washington, D.C., area code, court papers say.

"I'm glad we Muslims are finally hitting back! Allahu Akbar! The Kuffar deserve everything and more the lives they have taken".

"In Sha Allah one day I can", Jameson told the undercover agent, according to the affidavit. Jameson replied he would do anything and told the fake jihadist that he was trained in combat. Jameson completed Marine Corps basic training in 2009, earning a sharpshooter rifle qualification, but was discharged for failing to disclose his history of asthma, the affidavit stated.

The mother of Everitt Aaron Jameson is defending her son following his arrest earlier this week.

"Jameson stated that we need something along the lines of NY or San Bernardino", the affidavit stated.

According to the affidavit, Jameson wanted to conduct a terrorist attack that combined elements of both those attacks - the use of a vehicle and the use of firearms.

The San Francisco Police Department said Friday that people can expect to see an uptick in police presence at the city's attractions through the holidays, but they had planned for the additional enforcement before this alleged plot came to light. He allegedly described a plan using explosives which would "funnel" people to a location where he could then inflict casualties. Saying he was inspired by the New York City terror attack on October 31 and the mass shooting in San Bernardino in 2015, Jameson told the agent he had been trained in sharpshooting, the M-16 and AK-47, according to the court filing. He asked to be provided with weapons, including an assault rifle and materials needed to make explosive devices. They eventually met in person and talked about Jameson possibly traveling overseas to fight for ISIS or initiating an attack in the USA, a criminal complaint states.

The affidavit also detailed how Jamison planned the attack on the pier and how he volunteered to assist in sourcing a storage facility.

It appears that Jameson may have been clued-in that the feds were onto him.

But by late Monday night, Jameson had cold feet and told the undercover agent, "I ... don't think I can do this after all".

"At periodic times during [the Wednesday raid on his home] Jameson 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 was carried out", the affidavit stated.

"He lost his kids for good and he was devastated", his father, Gordon Jameson, told the Modesto Bee. "He's a loving, kind person that would never hurt nobody".

When Jameson's parents were notified of their son's alleged plans, they were in disbelief and said he was incapable of carrying out such an attack without the help and encouragement of the Federal Bureau of Investigation.
