La Times reporting terror plot involving multiple targets has been thwarted by FBI
quote:


A domestic terror plot aimed at “multiple targets” in Southern California was disrupted by federal and local law enforcement agencies, sources told the Los Angeles Times on Monday.

One man, described as a U.S. military veteran, was caught in an online sting operation and arrested by the FBI, according to law enforcement officials who spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to discuss the case with the media.

It’s unclear how far the plot got, but sources said the man had specific targets, including one in Long Beach. The sources said he had converted to Islam, but it was not known if that was related to the plot.

An official who said the plot involved “multiple targets” declined to elaborate further. A news conference to discuss the case has been scheduled for 1 p.m. in downtown Los Angeles.

Representatives from the U.S. attorney’s office for the Central District of California, the FBI, the LAPD, the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department and the Long Beach Police Department are expected to speak. A source in the Sheriff’s Department confirmed that the agency was involved in the surveillance and detention of the suspect.

I’m always concerned when I go through LAX.

It was reportedly on the 9/11 group’s short list.

Good job. Maybe they should start monitoring some of these white nationalists some more and they can thwart some of those acts of terrorism.

I know. The one in San Diego was. I said maybe they should START monitoring white nationalist groups to try and thwart more acts like the San Diego one from occurring.

Why aren't you commenting on the actual article? Or does your TDS preclude you from doing so?

Seems we hear a lot of these with few specific details. I'm always a bit skeptical
