Federal authorities say they have thwarted a domestic terror plot targeting several locations in the Los Angeles area, according to the Los Angeles Times.

The suspect, described as a U.S. military veteran, was reportedly the target of an online sting operation involving federal and local law enforcement and was arrested by the FBI, according to the Times, citing a law enforcement official.

The Justice Department said the suspect is Mark Steven Domingo of Reseda, Calif. The DOJ said that he received what he believed to be a live bomb from undercover law enforcement.

The man, a convert to Islam, reportedly had several specific targets including one in the Long Beach area, according to the Times. “It sounds like he tried to connect with other like-minded folks online,” a law enforcement source told the Times.

 

I wonder how the Southern Poverty Law Center wants to classify and tally this up.  Should it be filed under “hate crime”?  “White Christian supremacist domestic terrorism”?


Yet 2/3rds of U.S. terrorism is tied to right wing extremists, huh?

 

How many terror plots aimed at the U.S. and U.S. interests have been foiled over the past several years after 9/11?  Those should be factored into the equation.
