A man who authorities say was sympathetic to the self-declared Islamic State and plotting to carry out a suicide bombing at a U.S. Army base in Kansas, has been arrested and charged following a lengthy FBI sting operation.
John T. Booker Jr., 20, of Topeka, was apprehended Friday morning “while making final preparations for the suicide car bomb attack” he’d been planning at Fort Riley, Kansas Public Radio’s Stephen Koranda reports.
U.S. Attorney Barry Grissom says there was never any danger to the public.
“The perimeter of Fort Riley was never penetrated, there was never any concern on our part that he would get onto the fort and, unbeknownst to him, the materials that were used to make up this bomb were inert,” Grissom said.
