UPDATED (8:25p EDT): I just spoke again with my contact in the FBI Phoenix field office (who is not authorized to speak on behalf of the FBI office) that it is highly unlikely that Aldosary will be charged with any terrorism offense. While they are internally treating it like a domestic terrorism investigation, including looking at if he had any help constructing the explosive device, the FBI is saying very little and and will prosecute this as a simple explosives and arson case because of the political sensitivities involved.
Original Post: The typically quiet town of Casa Grande, Arizona was rocked by an explosion at the local Social Security Administration office early Friday morning by what appears to an improvised explosive device (IED). No one was hurt in the explosion, which occurred shortly before the office was scheduled to open. The explosion was reportedly heard and felt all over the area.
The Second Amendment isn't the problem jugheads! Cain didn't shoot Abel.
Neighbor says this could be a case of the usual suspects being picked up:
Nothing to see here, move along.
where is the FBI quote from?
it’s not terrorism since they couldn’t find anyone by that same name who belongs to a teaparty group and/or once attended a teaparty rally.

PHOENIX (AP) -
SNIPPET: “Authorities say a search of Aldosary’s home turned up documents hidden behind a picture that explained how to build a bomb. Aldosary also sought information on how to create explosive material known as RDX, “considered one of the most powerful of the military high explosives,” according to the initial criminal complaint. “RDX is believed to have been used in many bomb plots, including terrorist plots.”
Authorities also seized a handgun and rifle at Aldosary’s home, along with hundreds of rounds of ammunition and several gallons of chemicals that could be used to make a bomb, according to court documents.”
