FBI officials in San Francisco arrested a man named Everitt Aaron Jameson for planning a Christmas terrorist attack, targeting people on Pier 39.
Officials have stopped a man who reportedly stated that “Christmas was the perfect day” for a terror attack in San Francisco and “did not need an escape plan because he was ready to die.”
We’ve learned the FBI has arrested a man by the name of Everitt Aaron Jameson from Modesto. They say he wanted to target Pier 39.
According to FBI documents, Jameson picked out that location because he “had been there before and knew it was a heavily crowded area.” He added that it would be easy to “funnel” people into an area where he could inflict casualties.
The documents also say Jameson was posting and liking pro-ISIS and pro-terrorism content on Facebook.
Jameson was a Bernie Sanders supporter according to his Facebook page which has just been deleted (below is a screenshot).
The terror suspect was also a fan of many Islamic Facebook pages including “Arabic Islamic Academic”, “The Muslim Street” and “Islam’s Dank Meme Stash”.
Jameson reportedly converted to Islam two years ago. He said he was inspired by ISIS and the Manhattan truck attack.
