A former Marine whose controversial Facebook posts accused the US government of being behind the 9/11 terror attacks and who spoke of "revolution" has been arrested in Virginia.
Business Insider reports that agents from the FBI, Secret Service and Chesterfield County Police detained 26-year-old Brandon Raub without charges on Friday night after questioning him at his home about his Facebook posts.
WTVR reports that Raub is being held for medical evaluation at John Randolph Psychiatric Hospital in Hopewell.
Raub, a former Marine who served in both Iraq and Afghanistan, is an outspoken 9/11 "Truther" who believes the US government is responsible for the terror attacks on New York and Washington that killed nearly 3,000 people.
On August 14, Raub posted a photo of the severely-damaged Pentagon in the wake of the 9/11 attack with the caption "This is a photo of the Pentagon, right after our leaders shot a missile into it."
Raub also spoke about an imminent revolution against the US government.
"There has been an overwhelming amount of evil enacted and planned against you, your children and your countrymen," he wrote on August 12. "It is great in scope. Your government is evil. It is as simple as that. And the cavalry is coming."
"The Revolution will come for me," he wrote on August 16. "Men will be at my door soon to pick me up to lead it."
It is unclear why Raub was detained and taken to a psychiatric facility. His mother said that an FBI agent told her that he was "arrested by the Chesterfield Police Department" because he "assaulted an officer and resisted arrest" and that we was making threats that were "terrorist in nature." But the Chesterfield Police said he was not charged with assaulting an officer or resisting arrest and that Raub’s detention "was an FBI matter and we were just there to assist them."
Neither the FBI nor the Secret Service have charged Raub with any crime, spokespeople from both agencies told WTVR.
It is unclear what, if any, "terroristic threats" the government claimed Raub made, but under a provision of this year’s National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA), American citizens suspected of being terrorists face indefinite military detention without charge or trial. The NDAA, passed by Congress on Bill of Rights Day, was signed into law "with reservations" and a promise never to indefinitely detain US citizens by President Barack Obama away from the eyes of the corporate mainstream media on New Year’s Eve.
