Concord - A man know as Moose on Facebook was arrested in an FBI sting last week after allegedly posting bomb-making instructions online and planning to bomb a North Carolina abortion clinic.
FBI agents arrested a 26-year-old Northwest Concord man by the name of Justin Carl Moose at his home on Tuesday.
Officials said Thursday Moose was arrested and charged with describing how to make explosives, in an effort to bomb an abortion clinic, according to a report by the Charlotte Observer.
The investigation began after Planned Parenthood contacted the FBI about the Facebook page registered to Moose that they felt advocated extreme violence against abortion providers.
After monitoring the page and private messages, the FBI said that last week Moose collaborated with a confidential informant on the clinic bombing, giving him advice on how to carry out surveillance and according to the affidavit talked him through the process of making the explosive and answered his questions.
Moose describes himself as an "extremist, radical" and professes to be the "Christian counterpart of Osama bin Laden" and advocated violence for many different causes.
The page is no longer up but here are some of his Facebook quotes acquired by the Charlotte Observer and the FBI.
"Extremist, Radical, Fundamentalist...? Yep! Terrorist...? Well, I prefer the term 'freedom Fighter.'"
"The Death Care Bill passed last night, Keep your phone and rifle close and wait."
"If a mosque is built on ground zero, it will be removed. Oklahoma City style. Tim's not the only man out there that knows how to do it."
"Whatever you may think about me, you're probably right."
Moose allegedly also posted in August detailed instructions on how to make an explosive called by its acronym TATP which is similar to the explosive used in the 2005 London subway bombings.
He faces up to 20 years in jail and a fine of $250,000.
