More details to come. Jameson failed to disclose a latent asthma history.

“Jameson has espoused radical jihadi beliefs, including authoring social media posts that are supportive of terrorism, communicating with people he believes share his jihadi views and offering to provide services to such people, ” the criminal complaint says.

When the undercover Federal Bureau of Investigation operatives asked what he needed for the attack, Jameson outlined an ambitious plan involving M-16 and/or AK-47 rifles, timers, remote detonators, and pipe bomb materials. In those conversations, he described his interest in "planning and undertaking a violent attack in San Francisco in support of ISIS".

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 investigation may have been inadvertently exposed when an FBI employee mistakenly called Jameson's cell phone using a phone number with a Washington, D.C. area code. He also said that "he was ready to die". He was trained in both M16 and AK-47 rifles.

The FBI also discovered a handgun along with ammunition. He suggested that he could go to the mountains, build the devices at a remote campground and then return home and store the devices. Jameson acknowledged that he understood. Law enforcement officials say the FBI began investigating him in September, after a tipster reported that Jameson was making pro-jihadi comments in a Facebook posting.

While Uber publicly shrugged off the blow, the decision will likely still affect its future operations and political maneuvering in the EU.

"[God willing], one day I can", Jameson added. For instance, he loved a post in November that is an image of Santa Claus standing in NY with a box of dynamite.

Jameson was reportedly inspired by other terror attacks, such as the NY vehicle ramming terror attack on October 31, and the 2015 shooting in San Bernadino.

It appears that Jameson may have been clued-in that the feds were onto him. He also allegedly said that he would be happy if an attack took place. No one answered the phone there on Friday when KTVU called and left a message.

On December 18, Jameson allegedly sent the agent pictures of the location he had in mind. They add that he was arrested earlier this week and a search warrant was executed at his Modesto home. Investigators seized two.45 caliber magazines, several cylinder fireworks, a Winchester.22 caliber rifle, a Rugers Model M77 and a Sturm Ruger 9 mm handgun, along with a handwritten letter signed by an ISIS leader, according to the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

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

He wrote a letter stating among other things: "You all have brought this upon yourselves". He named Donald Trump and the Jews as the reasons for this "godless society", and he explained the attack was the reason "we have penetrated and infiltrated your disgusting country".
