“A secondary goal is to determine if Khan is being directed by a higher authority/authorities to do so,” states one of the documents in the FBI file, dated October 2, 2008. “If the investigation does determine that Khan is influencing or has influenced anyone to commit an act of terror, the FBI will disrupt Khan, either by prosecuting him for [providing material support to terrorism] and [solicitation to commit a crime of violence] or by other means.”

The FBI also considered recruiting Khan as an informant, rather than disrupting any terror plots with which he may have been involved, believing that doing so would be “more beneficial” to the US government from an intelligence standpoint.
