Khalid Ali-M Aldawsari, 20, a citizen of Saudi Arabia and resident of Lubbock, Texas, was arrested late yesterday by FBI agents in Texas on a federal charge of attempted use of a weapon of mass destruction in connection with his alleged purchase of chemicals and equipment necessary to make an improvised explosive device (IED) and his research of potential U.S. targets.
The arrest and the criminal complaint, which was unsealed in the Northern District of Texas, were announced by David Kris, Assistant Attorney General for National Security; James T. Jacks, U.S. Attorney for the Northern District of Texas; and Robert E. Casey Jr., Special Agent in Charge of the FBI Dallas Field Division.
Aldawsari is expected to make his initial appearance in federal court in Lubbock at 9:00 a.m. on Friday morning. Aldawsari, who was lawfully admitted into the United States in 2008 on a student visa and is enrolled at South Plains College near Lubbock, faces a maximum sentence of life in prison and a $250,000 fine if convicted of attempted use of a weapon of mass destruction.
According to the affidavit filed in support of the complaint, Aldawsari has been researching online how to construct an IED using several chemicals as ingredients. He has also acquired or taken a substantial step toward acquiring most of the ingredients and equipment necessary to construct an IED and he has conducted online research of several potential U.S. targets, the affidavit alleges. In addition, he has allegedly described his desire for violent jihad and martyrdom in blog postings and a personal journal.

This article is well worth reading in its entirety.
George W. Bush was on this terrorist’s list of possible targets.
Thank you, FBI, for your good and tireless work. I appreciate it.
God forbid that they would mention he’s a Saudi in the headline!
Amish in Texas? They’re branching out.
Texas resident= Saudi citizen,i just love the media spin.
In another e-mail titled NICE TARGETS 01, Aldawsari allegedly sent himself the names of 12 reservoir dams in Colorado and California. In another e-mail to himself, titled NICE TARGETS, he listed two categories of targets: hydroelectric dams and nuclear power plants. On Feb. 6, 2011, the affidavit alleges, Aldawsari sent himself an e-mail titled Tyrants House, in which he listed the Dallas address for former President George W. Bush. The affidavit also alleges that Aldawsari conducted research that could indicate his consideration of the use of infant dolls to conceal explosives and possible targeting of a nightclub with an explosive concealed in a backpack.
So would I.
We need to close our borders for five years until we sort out these people. Deport the illegals. Have planes standing by for anyone that doesn’t have the proper paperwork. Deport them immediately.
There, fixed it to be an honest headline.
Whodda thunk, a another terrorist with a student visa...
From where DO Christians come up with these names?

It’s an old Amish/Mennonite/pacifist tradition.
Last week the Muslim Brotherhood or similar was in the world news for shouting that all Americans needed to be out of the Middle East.
Okay by us, pal!
But here’s the deal: all Muslims out of the West, does that work for you, MB?
One of those peace loving moozlims no doubt. Sign him up as a member of CAIR.
It’s far beyond time (9/12/01) to stop these pos people from coming here for any reason. There’s more than enough American students in this country looking for a college education.
I would bet that they are in all 57 states.
