FBI Takes Down American Muslim Terrorist… Look What Obama’s Media Called Him
Following a 16-month long investigation, the FBI just arrested an American Muslim convert who was sympathetic to the Islamic State group and was planning to conduct an attack. Not surprisingly, the mainstream media has remained largely silent about this.
According to The Detroit News, federal law enforcement officials arrested 29-year-old Sebastian Gregerson, also known as Abdurrahman Bin Mikaayl, on federal weapons charges after he allegedly purchased five grenades from an undercover FBI agent.
A search of the property of the “homegrown extremist” revealed what the media referred to as “an arsenal” but what was known as a regular gun collection in much of the country: “(S)even rifles, two AK-47 assault rifles, a shotgun, handguns, thousands of rounds of ammunition,” and “tactical knives” similar to those used by Islamic State group militants to behead captives.
The man was also believed to have had some sort of ammunition storage container buried underground in his yard, though it was not immediately clear whether that was discovered or only suspected.
The man’s court-appointed attorney maintained that all of the firearms and ammunition had been purchased legally.
Thus far, the “domestic extremist” has not been charged with any terror-related crimes, and faced only federal weapons charges for purchasing and possessing the “destructive device” grenades sold to him by an undercover agent in a sting.
Gregerson had made it clear to investigators that he intended to pull off some sort of violent attack along the lines of the terror assaults seen in Orlando and Paris, which he had praised and obsessed over.
A search of the potential jihadist’s home and computer revealed that he had frequented Islamic State group websites, possessed CDs containing lectures by deceased Al Qaeda propagandist Anwar Al-Awlaki, and had even distributed the Islamic State group magazine Dabiq in his community.
Aside from launching an attack in or around the Detroit area, the American convert to jihad had also discussed targeting a Park Ranger or police officers, as well as Muslim imams in the city whom he considered insufficiently radicalized.
It is obvious that this man is a radical Islamic terrorist, despite the media and FBI attempts to downplay the Islamic nature of the suspect and focus on the fact that he is a white American gun owner with extremist views, as they put it.
Thankfully this guy was caught before he could launch his murderous jihadist attack. Now if only the media would fully report on his radical Islamism, instead of glossing over that pertinent fact.
