Somebody please stop these anti-government, right-wing Glenn Beck disciples:
A 26-year-old Virginia man is being held in federal custody after he allegedly threatened to set off bombs on the D.C. Metro system. The FBI was alerted to the threats, allegedly sent on Facebook’s instant messaging system, by an informant before any plot was developed.
Awais Younis, who also goes by the names Sundullah “Sunny” Ghilzai and Mohhanme Khan, was arrested on Dec. 7. According to federal authorities, he described how to build a pipe bomb and said he’d place bombs on the third and fifth cars of Metro trains since those trains had the highest number of commuters on them.
The guy was born in Afghanistan, which means he’s either Amish or Irish-Catholic. But by no means profile him based only on where he was born.
Here’s his Facebook page:
The good news: He’s been arrested. The bad news: He’s got 587 friends.
