“I’m not going to say that I’m completely innocent and I have no fault in this. Some of it is my fault, yes. But then again I also feel that if the informant hadn’t come along I would have just been making idle boasts and I wouldn’t have done anything.”

An Acampo man facing a terror charge wrote that he despised America and would kill his mother if necessary to fulfill his ambition to harm the U.S., according to a complaint filed in the United States District Court for the Western District of Washington.

He also aspired to attack the Los Angeles subway system, the complaint said.

    Supporting a President who arms and funds "al-Qaida" in direct violation of Article III, Section III of the US Constitution doesn't make sense...

    Then it doesn't make sense that the FBI arrested one of Obama's own soldiers, does it, Mr. Liebich?

    President Obama is currently arming and funding "al-Qaida" in Syria. When will the FBI be arresting him?

    i will post a few thoughts of mine here, as a reader from Vancouver Metro Canada. i read more here this day, as the news feeds, have just given the highlight of the story, that Teausant was arrested before entering Canada.

    the details here seem quite comprehensive, and paint a picture "to me" of a delusional young man.

    Teausant wants to make himself into something of importance , to be recognized as a power broker. this ' to me " seems psychosis,

    Certainly a detachment from family, " failing to look after his daughter " and a artificial hatred for his mother, is very troubling.

    if i come away with anything, reading this story, is that there " it seems to me " is very little safety net, to keep this emotional runaway thinking from happening in the first place.

    few Americans want to do harm to America. Overt self aggrandizing in this case leads to serious consequences. as rare as this story is, it still is very serious, to the individual and community.

    if i had to guess, i think this young man, was absent a Dad, in his life. i appreciate the fuller story here for me to read. i enjoyed traveling through Lodi, this past week. Mr. Israel's staff at Safe Way, were a help for me with flowers, and the books were something i needed from , the book lady , and Tom's used Books.

    we don't get many people to love in life, especially on the Internet, but it can happen.

    i noticed the spring like weather, and buds and blooms, i really appreciate Lodi, Acampo and Galt. wonderful place to live, wonderful people to meet and visit.

    just a first thought on this, Thomas Gx, in Vancouver Canada thanks all,
