Federal Bureau of Investigation thwarts ISIS-inspired Christmas terror attack on San Francisco

Jameson specifically named Pier 39 in San Francisco as a target for a terrorist attack because he "knew that it was a heavily crowded area", according to the complaint.

He explained that he also desired to use explosives, and described a plan in which explosives could "tunnel" or "funnel" people into a location where Jameson could inflict casualties. He reportedly said Christmas would be "the flawless day to commit the attack".

According to the FBI, Jameson was identified as an ISIS supporter in September based on his social-media activity, which was brought to authorities' attention by an agency informant. Jameson reportedly said he was inspired by the NY terror attack on October 31, when a man drove into a crowd of people along a bike path.

The FBI contends that when Jameson met with undercover agents December 16, it was under the guise that he was making contact with high-level ISIS leadership.

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. "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 a series of conversations with undercover employees with the FBI, Jameson said he wanted to join the Islamic State's cause against the United States, and said he could provide money or travel to Syria. Jameson told the agent that he had second thoughts about carrying out his plan, but agents had enough evidence to search his Modesto home.

Everitt Aaron Jameson has been charged and arrested with material support for terrorism.

Agent McKinney said Jameson attended basic recruit training for the U.S. Marine Corps and earned a "sharpshooter" rifle qualification. 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".

San Francisco acting Mayor London Breed praised law enforcement for foiling the alleged plot and said that while there was no known additional threats, police would be increasing their presence.

Jameson will appear in federal court in Fresno at 2 p.m.
