The FBI secretly kept tabs on Nicholas Michael Teausant for six months, having a confidential informant meet with him repeatedly in Stockton at breakfast joints, a park and a flea market as the 20-year-old student allegedly spun his vision of jihad against the United States.

Federal court papers say Teausant talked for months of his desire to train fighters in Syria, to bomb the Los Angeles subway system over the New Year’s Day holiday and to spark a civil war that would topple the U.S. government. :snip:

In Internet postings quoted in the complaint, as well as conversations Teausant had with a confidential FBI source, he said that he “wanted to go to Syria to fight, but did not know how to get there.”

He told the FBI source initially that he could not find his passport, and he expressed concerns that people he had conversed with on Facebook regarding an attack on the Los Angeles subway system might be informants.

He also had difficulty at one point remembering the name of the Syrian group he hoped to join, according to the confidential FBI source quoted in the criminal complaint.

“I like ISIS,” Teausant was quoted as saying, “Islamic State of, um, crap … I forget. Islamic State of Al Sham.”

The kid has delusions of grandeur. He hasn’t even been to basic training and he wants to train fighters.

I wonder what “sides” he envisioned in our civil war...
