The FBI’s terrorism task force has arrested a 25-year-old Arlington man on suspicion of making bomb threats via Facebook.

Awais Younis was taken into custody on Dec. 7. In court documents, he’s accused of threatening to use pipe bombs to blow up a busy section of Georgetown. He’s also accused of threatening to place bombs on Metro trains.

More from TBD, Fox 5 and the Washington Post.

    In related news, there are mentally disturbed people yelling threats on a number of our local sidewalks during nicer weather. I suspect this is more akin to that than Evil Terrorist Masterminds Coming to Get Us.

    The thing that keeps us safest from these fellows? Idiocy. And thankfully, that’s pretty reliable.

      Well I was wondering why the question was asked. Can he now sigh in relief, “Whew, that is a good six, seven minutes’ drive away?” 😀

    So this guy wanted to “blow up a large part of Georgetown” by placing bombs on Metro trains? Good luck, since the closest he’ll get is Foggy Bottom or Rosslyn!!!
