FBI agents arrested a 29-year-old man in a sting operation Friday night who planned a suicide bombing attack on Capitol Hill in Washington DC.
Justice Department spokesman Dean Boyd told reporters the suspect had been closely monitored by law enforcement while planning to detonate what he believed were explosives. He allegedly prayed in a Washington mosque shortly before his arrest. The suspect was allegedly of Moroccan descent and has spent 12 years in the United States, but it is not clear whether he has U.S. citizenship. He had been under surveillance for several weeks, sources said, and had considered a large number of targets, including military bases and synagogues.
According to a Fox News report, the suspect believed the undercover FBI agents with whom he was in contact were associates of the international Al Qaeda terrorist organization.

“... the suspect had been closely monitored by law enforcement while planning to detonate what he believed were explosives.”
Kinda like the panty bomber, I guess.
So they kmew for a year this amish guy have an expired visa but i guess it was more important to see if he would become a terrorist.
It’s a jobs program for the FBI.
when will they finally close the net on the trap they set for the illegal Kenyan muslim currently in the white house? He’s real close to finally destroying the country, they have to act soon.
Why not just give him a kilo of plastique and see where he plants it? That’d be in keeping with Holder’s gun policy.
Just another (mentally) botched operation brought to you by the F&F Folks.
What if the FBI planned the attack and trolled around till the found a willing person, after all they did supply the weapons.
