Another FBI agent began communicating undercover with Jameson on social media on December 11. In those conversations, he described his interest in "planning and undertaking a violent attack in San Francisco in support of ISIS".

Earlier this month, McKinney said an undercover Federal Bureau of Investigation agent began communicating with Jameson and questioned how he might be able to help 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.

Flu activity is 'widespread' statewide. Still time to get vaccine, officials say
The CDC reports that vaccinations reduce the risk of illness by 40 to 60 percent among the overall populations during flu season. Other tips include washing your hands frequently, staying home when you are sick and avoiding touching your hands to your face.

"Jameson clarified that he likewise wanted to utilize explosives and depicted a play in which explosives could "passage" or "channel" individuals into an area where Jameson could cause setbacks", McKinney composed. He said he did not need an escape plan because he was "ready to die", the documents state. He was trained in both M16 and AK-47 rifles. He told the agent he would build the devices in the mountains.

Earlier this week, the complaint said, Jameson told the agent he was having second thoughts about the plot. Jameson acknowledged that he understood.

Officials say Everitt Aaron Jameson ultimately said he didn't want to go through with it, after an Federal Bureau of Investigation employee accidentally called his phone with an identifiable Washington D.C. -based phone number. Jameson called back and got the employee's voice mail, which gave only a name. Turn to Allah, make tawbah and fight with us, the soldiers who fight in the day and the night. According to a handwritten letter obtained by the FBI, Jameson also referred to himself as Abdallah adu Everitt ibn Gordon. For instance, he loved a post in November that is an image of Santa Claus standing in NY with a box of dynamite.

On Nov. 2, after the Halloween attack in NY in which eight people died when a rented truck was used to kill pedestrians on a jogging path, Jameson told the informant, "I'm glad to know we Muslims are finally hitting back".

Jameson also allegedly expressed support for Sayfullo Saipov, an Uzbek immigrant who drove a rented truck down a Lower Manhattan bike path on Halloween, killing eight people and injuring 11 others. No one answered the phone there on Friday when KTVU called and left a message.

"I also don't think I can do this after all", Jameson wrote.
