The FBI arrested a 25-year-old Army veteran who is accused of plotting what he believed was a Presidents’ Day attack with ISIS.

Robert Lorenzo Hester Jr., a Missouri-born U.S. citizen, was communicating with an undercover FBI agents for months, believing they were terrorist operatives, the Huffington Post reports. 

The FBI was alerted to Hester after he posted on social media that he’d “converted to Islam, expressed animus towards the United States, and posted photos of weapons and the ISIS flag.”

According to affidavits, Hester told undercover agents that he wanted the government to be “overthrown” and hoped for a “global jihad.” The feds also allege that he identified potential targets for attack.

Hester, who was discharged from the Army after less than a year of enlistment in 2013, “attempted to provide material support to ISIS by assisting in what he believed would be a murderous terrorist bombing and gunfire attack committed in the name of the foreign terrorist organization,” the Justice Department said in a press release.
