Investigators responded to the area after a resident reported wires dangling from under the sedan. A bomb sniffing dog “alerted” on the car, police said.

BREMERTON, Wash. ‘ Authorities say a suspicious device found last week near an elementary school in Bremerton likely contained explosive materials.

The Would-Be Terrorist vs. the FBI

Since 9/11, more than 300 people have been prosecuted for terrorism-related offenses based on information collected in FBI stings’over one-third of all terrorism defendants. This is the story of one such American’a marginalized, mentally ill young man who drew the FBI’s attention with his social-media posts and then staggered into its elaborately constructed snare.

It was December 2010, and 26-year-old Matthew Llaneza felt like the walls were closing in on him. He’d been discharged from the Marines after a month, for chronic asthma, and he was living with his grandparents in a one-floor stucco house in Mesa, Arizona. The city of just under a half million people sits 20 miles east of Phoenix and is surrounded by the Sonoran Desert, a vast swath of dry, rugged terrain whose towering cacti and craggy, sun-bleached rock formations stretch deep into Mexico. Although he’d grown up in the area, a working-class, largely immigrant community in the western corner of the city, he felt it had changed since he was last there: The neighborhood seemed less predictable, the streets more volatile, with young men like him increasingly under the sway of gangs and drug cartels. He found things so dangerous, in fact, that during that winter he never traveled anywhere without a gun.

Inside the Hunt for the World’s Most Dangerous Terrorist

Hussain’s tactics weren’t necessarily new, but he and fellow ISIS terrorists executed them at a level we’d never seen before. Hussain represented, in some ways, the most dangerous terrorist we’d yet seen’a master of the emerging world of digital jihad.

* * *

Terrorism online presented a new twist’never before had the United States been involved in a conflict where the enemy could communicate from overseas directly with the American people. And just months before I arrived at the FBI in 2007, working as a special counsel and later chief of staff to Director Robert Mueller, a new online tool named Twitter launched. We had no idea then how much power it would give to online extremists.
