AusWitness then happily took credit for the attack on jihadi forums, the only place outside of a Jackass audition where successfully convincing idiots to get themselves killed is a considered an achievement.
That same year, AusWitness hatched a plan to attack a 9/11 commemoration in Kansas City. He sent plans for a pressure cooker bomb to a wannabe bomber, specified that the bomb should be filled with metal screws and dipped in rat poison to maximize casualties, and instructed him where to hide it. As a reward, AusWitness promised he would post and share a video of the bombing online -- which, granted, is the closest a dead terrorist will ever get to coming in touch with 72 virgins.
But the wannabe bomber turned out to be an undercover FBI agent trying to expose AusWitness after the Garland attack. Finally, with enough information to determine the identity of this Islamic death cultist, the FBI found he was ... a nerdy Jewish kid from Florida? AusWitness turned out to be one of many online identities maintained by Joshua Ryne Goldberg, who lived with his parents in Jacksonville. To fill the massive void in his non-life, Goldberg pretended to be various extremists online, including a neo-Nazi named Michael Slay and "social justice warrior" Tanya Cohen. Possibly because of his own complete lack of personality, Goldberg was really good at impersonating others, once even getting a shockingly racist column published in The Times of Israel under the name of a Jewish lawyer who had pissed him off.
What surprised the police most was that, like any online troll, Goldberg didn't have the spine to believe in any of the horrendous things he was saying. After his arrest, he claimed he only incited terrorism because online jihadists were "pussies," and he never thought anyone would go through with the attacks he meticulously planned. Maybe he'll be able to extend that fatalist attitude to all the beatdowns he's getting now that he's serving ten years in federal prison on terrorism charges.
