After discovering that Farooque Ahmed, a 34-year-old Pakistani computer engineer, was inquiring about contacting terrorist organizations overseas, the FBI sent an email to him that offered the chance to meet a terrorist. The supposed Al Qaeda operative, an undercover FBI agent, tasked Ahmed with surveilling four Metro stations. He provided pictures and sketches of the stations. Ahmed told the undercover agent he had been training for an attack by studying martial arts as well as knife and gun techniques.
