An Ohio Muslim man has been accused of plotting to spark a bloody civil war by provoking standoffs between American militia leaders and federal authorities, reports Joseph Farah’s G2 Bulletin.
“We pull something off like filling militia leaders computers and phones with child sexual abuse then tip the fbi,” said the suspect, according to a court filing uncovered by the Investigation Project on Terrorism.
“When the militias see their leaders are being arrested left and right, they’ll panic,” he continued. “Then we start off assassinations … soon militias will have standoffs with the feds which will turn bloody.”
The suspect is Naser Almadaoji, 19, a naturalized U.S. citizen from Iraq. IPT reported he was arrested at John Glenn International Airport in Columbus, Ohio. He was attempting to travel to Astana, Kazakhstan, “hoping then to be smuggled into Afghanistan to be trained by the ISIS affiliate.”
He was charged with attempting to provide material support to the ISIS branch in Afghanistan and Pakistan, known as Wilayat Khorasan, the report said.
The details from an FBI affidavit said he was questioned by Customs and Border Protection last winter following a trip to Egypt and Jordan.
“It isn’t clear what triggered it, but the FBI had a confidential source posing as an ISIS supporter contact Almadaoji in August via a messaging app,” IPT said.
Almadaoji later told the informant he wanted to trigger a civil conflict between the U.S. government and anti-government militias.
“I imagined a scenario of the collapse of the US as a nation,” he said. “… They have alot [sic] of weak spots 2 really weak spots that would ignite the deadliest civil war on earth if the right spots are poked.”
Almadaoji also envisioned a repeat of the Oklahoma City bombing in 1995 in which a vehicle was exploded next to a federal building, killing 168 people.
