(CHRISTIAN SCIENCE MONITOR) A Florida man faces up to 20 years in federal prison for allegedly plotting an attack on a 9/11 memorial in Kansas City, Mo.
The US Attorney’s Office announced Thursday that 20-year-old Joshua Ryne Goldberg was arrested and charged with distributing information relating to explosives, destructive devices, and weapons of mass destruction.
In July, Mr. Goldberg began distributing information to an FBI informant on how to build a bomb with a pressure cooker, rat poison, and nails, according to a criminal complaint. The complaint says he instructed the informant to place the bomb at an upcoming memorial in Kansas City that was commemorating the anniversary of 9/11: The Kansas City Stair Climb.
