AWAIS YOUNIS,
Case No. 1:10 A<f ^i^
UNDER SEAL
also known as Sundullah Ghilzai,
also Mohhanme Khan,
also Sunny,

AFFIDAVIT IN SUPPORT OF
A CRIMINAL COMPLAINT AND ARREST WARRANT

I, Joseph J Lesinski, being first duly sworn, hereby depose and stateas follows:

INTRODUCTION AND AGENT BACKGROUND

1. I am a Special Agent with the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) and am

currently assigned to the Joint Terrorism Task Force at the Washington Field Office. 1have

served as a Special Agent for over four years and have conducted numerous investigations of

terrorism threats directed at targets within the national capital region.

2. This affidavit is submitted in support of a criminal complaint and arrest warrant

for Awais Younis, also known as Sundullah, also known as Mohhanme Khan, also known as

Sunny. Basedon the facts contained herein, there is probable cause to believe that Awais

Younis has committed a violation of federal law. that is communicating threats using interstate

communications in violation of 18 U.S.C. 875(c).

3. The facts in this affidavit come from my personal observations, my training and

experience, and information obtained from other agents and witnesses. This affidavit is intended
Case 1:10-mj-00812-IDD Document 3 Filed 12/06/10 Page 2 of 7

to show merely that there is sufficient probable cause for the requested warrant and does not set
forth all of my knowledge about this matter.

PROBABLE CAUSE

4. On or about 11/28/2010, FBI NewOrleans Office received a complaint regarding

a person making several threats to use explosives in the Washington, D.C. area, to include the

Washington D.C. METRO transit system. The information was sent to FBI Washington Field

Office. Complainant identified the subject as Sundullah "Sunny" Ghilzai and had contact with

him through Facebook, an online social networking site. The complainant recounted that during

a chat with Ghilzai in November 2010, Ghilzai described how to build a pipe bomb and what

type of shrapnel would cause the greatest amount of damage. Ghilzai also statedthat he could

place a pipe bomb undera sewer head in Georgetown (assumed to be a reference to the

neighborhood in Washington, D.C.) at rush hour to produce the greatest number of casualties.

Ghilzai further stated that the third and fifth cars in the METRO trains had the highest number of

commuters on them and he could place pipe bombs in these locations and would not be noticed.

Complainant responded by saying "you wouldn't do that," and Ghilzai replied by saying, "watch

me." Complainant also related that Ghilzai has many photographs on his Facebook profile. One

photograph showed Ghilzai in Afghanistan holding an AK-47 rifle with his uncle standing in

front of a tent with explosives in the tent. The caption for the photograph read, "My family

business." A separate photograph posted on 12/01/2010 depicted a hand holding rifle rounds for

a machine gun with the caption reading "bullet behind every rock." Also, according to

complainant, subject had recently stated on Facebook that "Christmas trees were going to go

boom."
Case 1:10-mj-00812-IDD Document 3 Filed 12/06/10 Page 3 of 7

5. On 12/02/2010,1 verified Sundullah Ghilzai's Facebook profile ID as 548712700.

A preservation request was sent to Facebook for ID: 548712700 and a Grand Jury subpoena was

issued for subscriber information for Facebook ID: 548712700. The results of the Grand Jury

subpoena showed that the subscriber provided email address sunnyisbeast22(a).hotmail.corn.

which is the same email address listed on Sundullah Ghilzai's Facebook profile and provided by

the complainant. On 12/03/2010, a search warrant issued by the U.S. District Court for the

Eastern District of Virginia was served on Facebook for Facebook ID 548712700. A review of

the results of the search warrant showed that the subject, Sundullah Ghalzai, appeared to be the

sole user of the account. Further review of the Facebook information showed that the subject

listed his cell phone as (571) 276-6427. Results of the search warrant also showed that a

majority of the Internet Protocol (IP) addresses that were used when Sundullah Ghalzai logged

onto his Facebook account were 69.143.164.219. I know that IP address is an acronym for

Internet Protocol address and is a code made up of numbers separated by three dots that

identifies a particular computeron the internet. A Grand Jury subpoena was served on Comcast

Communications for subscriber information for IP address 69.143.164.219. The results show

that the subscriber is Mohhanme Khan at 1561 South 11* Street, Arlington, Virgina.

6. Based on the user's cell phone number derived from the search warrant, a Grand

Jury subpoenawas served on T-Mobile requesting subscriberinformation for (571) 276-6427.

The results showed the following subscriber information: Aftab Bukhari, 1561 S 11* St,

Arlington, VA, date of birth 04/29/1957.

7. The address 1561 South 1l,h Street, Arlington, Virginia, is listed as the residence

for a Awais Younis on his Virginia Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) driver's license. A

recent query of subject in the Virginia DMV showed that his status is currently "not licensed"
3
Case 1:10-mj-00812-IDD Document 3 Filed 12/06/10 Page 4 of 7

but still listed Awais Younis' address as 1561 South 11th Street, Arlington, VA. The FBI

compared the photograph from the DMV license forAwais Younis with the photograph obtained

from Sundullah Ghilzai's Facebook profile and determined that he is the same person.

Accordingly, the FBI has concluded that Awais Younis is the true name for the subject and

Sundullah Ghilzai is an alias for the subject.

8. Additional investigation has revealed another connection between subject and the

residence listed with Bukhari. Law enforcement database queries indicate that Awais Younis

was involved in an automobile accident on 05/10/2010 in Fairfax, Virginia. Younis was driving

a vehicle that was registered to Aftab Bukhari, with an address of 1561 South 1l,h Street,

Arlington, Virginia, the same individual who is the subscriber to telephone number (571) 276-

5427.

9. On 12/04/2010, a search warrant and order for disclosure of location services and

installation of a pen register and trap and trace device was issued by the U.S. District Court for

the Eastern District of Virginia and was served on T-Mobile for subject's telephone number

(571) 276-6427. Cell tower tracking shows that subject's cell phone is hitting off of towers in

the vicinity of hisresidence at 1561 South 11* Street, Arlington, Virginia.

10. On 12/05/2010, complainant contacted Special Agent Sandra L. Vandagriff of the

FBI New Orleans Office. Complainant informed Special Agent Vandagriff that he/she had again

received messages on his/her Facebook page from username Subdullah Ghilzai, whom the FBI

determined to be Awais Younis. The message reads as follows:

Sundullah Ghilzai: what's up?

Complainant: nothing whats up with you


4
Case 1:10-mj-00812-IDD Document 3 Filed 12/06/10 Page 5 of 7

Sundullah Ghilzai: oh really BITCH I know what you are up too and you better stop if

you know what is good for you!!!!!

Complainant: sunny what are you talking about, why are you talking to me that way.

Sundullah Ghilzai: im just saying i know whats up and im telling you cut it out or i will.

Complainant: ummm ok i don't know what your talking about but ok.

Sundullah Ghilzai: you are sticking your nose where it doesn't belong into something

bigger then you and I. that is the problem with Americans they cant leave well enough

alone until something happends then they sit there wondering why we dropped the twin

towers like a bad habit hahaha. im telling you right now you are going to regret doing

what you did. for your peace i hope what i am hearing is all lies.

Complainant: stop talking that way sunny its making me nervous.

Sundullah Ghilzai: you should be nervous. You pissed me off. when things happen it

will be your fault, just wait and see. its only a matter of time.

Complainant: what are you talking about.

Sundullah Ghilzai: you want a reason to complain out me and my people, i will give you

one. in your honor, how about that. Now good bye and good luck and remember next

time the only way to make things ok with me is to fear me. that I will prove. GET

READY!

Sundullah Ghilzai: hello?

Sundullah Ghilzai: whats a matter spoiled brat are you scared?


5
Case 1:10-mj-00812-IDD Document 3 Filed 12/06/10 Page 6 of 7

Sundullah Ghilzai: do yourself a favor and tell your father to cancel work tomorrow

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAAHHAHAHAHAAHAHAHAHAA!

11. Complainant used a cell phone camera to take photographs of the chat session

between complainant and Sundullah Ghilzai and forwarded them to Special Agent Vandagriff.

Special Agent Vandagriff forwarded the photographs to Special Agent Lesinski and informed

him of the chat session between complainant and Sundullah Ghilzai.

12. Complainant related to Special Agent Vandagriff that it was concerned for its

safety and fearful of retaliation for coming to the authorities based on comments noted above.

Notably, the comments, "oh really BITCH I know what you are up too and you better stop if you

know what is good for you!!!!!," "im telling you right now you are going to regret what you

did," "I will give you one. in your honor," "the only way to make things ok with me is to fear

me. that i will prove. GET READY!" Complainant also stated that it is very concerned and

fearful for the complainant's father's safety based on subject's comments, "do yourself a favor

and tell your father to cancel work tomorrow." Complainant is also fearful because the

complaintant's father's employment is in Washington, D.C. and he rides the METRO to work.

13. There is probable cause to believe that Younis has commited a criminal violation

by communicating threats via interstate communications in violation of Title 18, United States

Code, Section 875(c). Communication with the complainant, both the original threats to the

METRO and the Washington, D.C. area and also the personal threats against the complainant,

would require the use of a computer.


Case 1:10-mj-00812-IDD Document 3 Filed 12/06/10 Page 7 of 7

CONCLUSION

14. Based on my training and experience, and the facts as set forth in this affidavit,

there is probable cause to believe that Awais Younis engaged in Interstate Communications in

violation of 18 U.S.C 875 (c).

15. I request that this affidavit be placed under seal until further order of this Court.

This is necessary to protect the identityof the complainant and the ongoing investigation.

Premature disclosure of the contentsof this affidavit would frustrate this investigation by

immediately alerting the subject of the investigation to the nature of the probe, the techniques

employed and the evidencedeveloped to date, and the identityof those providing the

information.

AWAIS YOUNIS,

also known as "Mohhanme Khan," UNDER SEAL
also known as "Sunny,"

GOVERNMENT'S MOTION TO SEAL THE ARREST WARRANT AND AFFIDAVIT IN


SUPPORT OF AN ARREST WARRANT PURSUANT TO LOCAL RULE 49(B)

The United States, by and through undersigned counsel, pursuant to Local Rule

49(B) of the Local Criminal Rules for the United States District Court for the Eastern

District of Virginia, asks for an Order to Seal the arrest warrant and affidavit in support

of an arrest warrant until an attorney has been appointed for the defendant, AWAIS

YOUNIS, also known as "Sundullah Ghilzai," also known as "Mohhanme Khan," also

known as "Sunny," or until further order from the Court.

I. REASONS FOR SEALING (Local Rule 49(B)(1))

1. Premature disclosure of the affidavit in support of the arrest warrant may

jeopardize an ongoing criminal investigation by revealing to targets of the investigation

not only how much the investigators know, but also how much they do not know.

Disclosure of what the investigators do not know may lead such targets to destroy

evidence, tamper with potential witnesses not yet interviewed by investigators, or shape

their own stories to hide what the investigators do not know. We have considered

alternatives less drastic than sealing but found none that would suffice to protect the

S>
Case 1:10-mj-00812-IDD Document 5 Filed 12/06/10 Page 2 of 3

investigation.

II. REFERENCES TO GOVERNING CASE LAW (Local Rule 49(B)(2))

2. The Court has the inherent power to seal indictment, summons, and

arrest warrants. See United States v. Wuaaneux. 683 F.2d 1343,1351 (11mCir. 1982);

State of Arizona v. Mavpennv. 672 F.2d 761, 765 (9th Cir. 1982); Times Mirror Company

v. United States. 873 F.2d 1210 (9,h Cir. 1989): see also Shea v. Gabriel. 520 F.2d 879

(1st Cir. 1975); United States v. Hubbard. 650 F.2d 293 (D.C. Cir. 1980); In re

Brauahton. 520 F.2d 765, 766 (9th Cir. 1975). "The trial court has supervisory power

over its own records and may, in its discretion, seal documents if the public's right of

access is outweighed by competing interests." In re Knight Pub. Co.. 743 F.2d 231,

235 (4th Cir. 1984). Sealing indictments, summons, and arrest warrants is appropriate

where there is a substantial probability that the release of the sealed documents would

compromise the government's on-going investigation severely. See e.g. In re Search

Warrant for Secretarial Area Outside Office of Gunn. 855 F.2d 569, 574 (8th Cir. 1988);

Matter of Eye Care Physicians of America. 100 F.3d 514, 518 (7th Cir. 1996); Matter of

Flower Aviation of Kansas. Inc.. 789 F.Supp. 366 (D. Kan. 1992).

III. PERIOD OF TIME GOVERNMENT SEEKS TO HAVE MATTER REMAIN


UNDER SEAL (Local Rule 49(B)(3))

4. The arrest warrant and affidavit in support of the arrest warrant would

need to remain sealed until counsel is appointed for the defendant, AWAIS YOUNIS.

The United States will move to unseal the sealed materials as soon as sealing is no

longer necessary.

5. The United States has considered alternatives less drastic than sealing
Case 1:10-mj-00812-IDD Document 5 Filed 12/06/10 Page 3 of 3

and has found none that would suffice to protect this investigation.

WHEREFORE, the United States respectfully requests that the arrest warrant

and affidavit in support of the arrest warrant and this Motion to Seal and proposed

Order be sealed until counsel is appointed for the defendant, or until further order of the

Court.
