The FBI first noticed Cornell several months ago, after an informant notified the agency that Cornell was allegedly voicing support for violent “jihad” on Twitter accounts under the alias, “Raheel Mahrus Ubaydah,” according to charging documents. In addition, Cornell allegedly posted statements, videos and other content expressing support for ISIS – the terrorist group also known as ISIL – that is wreaking havoc in Iraq and Syria.

Plausible. It's just like when the female cops dress up like hookers and solicit guys on the street, then the marked units roll up and arrest the potential customer. Obviously a grander scheme here, but the blueprint is basically the same. Gives them something to do and amps up fear at the same time.
