From Louise Boyle and Wills Robinson writing at the Daily Mail:

The Boston terror suspect shot dead by a cop was planning to behead controversial anti-Muslim blogger Pamela Geller, a report suggests.

Usaamah Abdullah Rahim, 26, who was gunned down by law enforcement while wielding a knife on Tuesday, wanted to decapitate the president of the American Freedom Defense Initiative, according to CNN.

It was allegedly part of a scheme where he and David Wright, who had previously laughed about ISIS beheadings, wanted to murder a police officer as part of an imitation killing.

Geller, a conservative activist, was threatened by the Islamic State after organizing a Prophet Mohammed cartoon event in Garland, Texas, where two extremists were shot dead while trying to carry out an attack.
