Blue Wave News: Justin Carl Moose, the American Rightwing “Christian Counterpart to Osama Bin Laden”

September 10, 2010- Meet Justin Carl Moose, American-born-and-bred Christian extremist and would-be terrorist. He was arrested last Tuesday by the FBI in Concord, NC “on charges of providing information related to the making, use, or manufacture of an explosive, destructive device, or weapon of mass destruction to a person Moose believed was planning to bomb a women’s health clinic in North Carolina.” (Hat-tip to ThinkProgress for bringing this story to our attention.)

Apparently, this 26-year-old Christian radical hit the FBI radar when Planned Parenthood complained to the Bureau about posts he made on his Facebook page advocating violence against abortion providers. After agents began monitoring his Facebook activity, they sent in a confidential informant posing as a man whose best friend’s wife was going to have an abortion.

FBI agents recorded the call. “Say no more,” Moose said, according to the affidavit. “I understand and I can help.”

On Friday, Sept. 4, the confidential source met Moose at the TGI Fridays restaurant at Concord Mills, the affidavit says. There, in a conversation recorded by the FBI, Moose described several bombs the source could make in order to destroy the abortion clinic his wife’s friend was planning to use.

Moose also gave the source advice on how to conduct surveillance. He told the source to drink several beers and stagger around the clinic pretending to be drunk. If authorities confronted him, Moose explained, the man could tell them he was just looking for a place to urinate.

Finally, on Sept. 5, the confidential source called Moose again and said he had obtained the chemicals to make the explosive TATP. Moose talked him through the process of making the explosive and answered his questions, the affidavit says.

Judging from the media accounts, this guy self-identified as “the Christian counterpart of Osama bin Laden,” and used his Facebook like a public diary, recording his most incendiary radical beliefs for the world to view...
