Federal authorities charged a 25-year-old man with an alleged terror plot in the United States. Sami Osmakac was allegedly targeting crowded locations in the Tampa, Florida area.

FOX News Radio's Eben Brown has the details from Miami:

The Feds have Sami Osmakac in custody in Tampa, saying he told one of their agents he plotted bomb and rifle attacks in the area. He's a naturalized U.S. citizen, born in the former Yugoslavia.

And this was a sting operation that began when the FBI found out he was looking to obtain al-Qeada flags. He ended up making a down payment for AK-47's and a bomb belt to an undercover FBI agent.

The FBI says tracking this man down came with help from the Muslim American community in the area.
