Federal authorities charged a 20-year-old Topeka man Friday with plotting to bomb Fort Riley in league with, he believed, the so-called Islamic State.
John Thomas Booker Jr., also known as Mohammed Abdullah Hassan, was named with in three counts that alleged he planned on Friday to use a “weapon of mass destruction” to damage property at the U.S. Army Base near Junction City in a suicide mission.
He was arrested without incident 9 a.m. Friday. Conviction on any count could mean a sentence of life in prison. The charges were announced by U.S. Attorney Barry Grissom of Kansas.
“We face a continued threat from individuals within our own borders who may be motivated by a variety of causes,” Grissom stated.

Kansas man faces sentencing for role in foiled bomb plot
Alexander Blair has admitted his role in a foiled terrorist attack: aiding a wannabe Islamic State jihadist's plan to detonate a bomb at the Fort Riley military post to kill or maim as many U.S. service members as possible. Blair says "nobody is perfect" and blames a genetic disorder for allowing others to take advantage of him.
U.S. District Judge William Crabtree will weigh that and other factors Wednesday when he hears testimony and arguments as he calculates how much prison time, if any, the 29-year-old Topeka man should serve.
Blair pleaded guilty in May to a conspiracy count that carries up to five years' imprisonment. He admitted loaning John T. Booker $100, knowing it would be used to pay for storage of a bomb Booker planned to detonate in April 2015 outside Fort Riley, about 60 miles west of Topeka.
Generic Disorder???? OMG 😡😡 SMH!
