FBI arrests Army soldier who allegedly discussed plans to bomb major American news network - ABC News - via @ABC

He communicated with like-minded individuals, an informant, and an undercover agent via Facebook, Telegram, and in person.
Terrorist targets mentioned:

Cell towers
A local news station
The national headquarters of a major news org (large truck bomb)
Beto O'Rourke (more as an aside rather than as a specific target)
If you've been watching my twitter feed for any length of time, you've seen dozens of domestic terrorist plots - both white supremacist and anti-government extremist - thwarted by the FBI.

By no means is the FBI perfect [cough]Bundy Ranch[/cough] but they've been pretty damned active in the militia and white supremacist movements.
Keep an eye out for articles which claim the FBI is behind this defendant's plan and you'll see what I mean.
