Haris Qamar and an FBI informant discussed ISIS’s need for photos of attack targets for a purported video to inspire lone-wolf actors in the United States. Qamar volunteered to draft a list of possible targets in Washington, D.C., and Virginia. The informant drove Qamar to some of the targets, and Qamar then took photographs.
