    FBI arrests Jordanian for downtown Dallas bomb plot

    FBI arrests Jordanian for downtown Dallas bomb plot
    Thu Sep 24, 2009 7:15pm EDT

    DALLAS, Sept 24 (Reuters) - A Jordanian national was arrested by the FBI on Thursday for attempting to bomb a skyscraper in downtown Dallas, the Department of Justice said.

    "Hosam Maher Husein Smadi, 19, has been arrested and charged in a federal criminal complaint with attempting to use a weapon of mass destruction," the department said in a statement.

    "Smadi, who was under continuous surveillance by the FBI, was arrested today near Fountain Place, a 60-story glass office tower ... in downtown Dallas, after he placed an inert/inactive car bomb at the location," it said.

    Holy smokes! Two bomb plots in one day. This one and the one in Illinois.

    God Bless the FBI!

    Hmmm...These two plots sound almost identical. They must be related somehow.

    I don't think it can possibly be a coincidence that the FBI arrested two different guys in two different cities on the same day, for a plot to blow up a federal building with a car bomb. There must be some kind of connection.

    Could the connection be Jihad?

    I'm not sure where the thread about the arrests re: the NYC terror probes are, but I just saw an article saying one guy had planned to set off hydrogen bombs in the transit system on the 9/11 anniversary:


    NYC terror attack apparently was set for Sept. 11 | TPM News Pages



    These terror plot stories are making me nervous.
