I reported it here about a month ago, but it appears that the FBI is taking a terrorist plot on LA targets by some former Crip members who converted to Islam while in prison very seriously.

A Pakistani national has been arrested in a terrorism investigation into a possible plot to attack the Israeli Consulate, California National Guard facilities and other targets.

Twenty-one-year-old Hammad Riaz Samana was taken into custody August second. He has been detained at the Metropolitan Detention Center in Los Angeles.

A law enforcement source says the arrest came after investigators discovered a potential target list at the Los Angeles home of Levar Haney Washington, who has been implicated in a series of gas station robberies in southern Los Angeles County.

The list included three National Guard facilities in the Los Angeles area, as well as the Israeli Consulate and a couple of synagogues.

Washington was arrested July fifth for investigation of robbery. Also arrested was Gregory Vernon Patterson of Gardena.Both men have pleaded innocent in Torrance Superior Court.
