    Re: FBI Arrests Suspected Terror Plotter in Texas

    I'm not willing to speculate about this right now. The feds thought he was the real deal, so they charged him. Let's wait until we see evidence presented at trial before we either string him up or presume he must be innocent based upon his country of origin. Sometimes we just can't automatically react to the party platform without, you know, rational thought.

    Ok, we'll hold a trial, then we'll string him up....

    A North Carolina chemical supply company reported Mr. Aldawsari to the Federal Bureau of Investigation on Feb. 1, citing a suspicious order, the complaint said. Officials said that set off a fast-moving investigation involving hundreds of agents, prosecutors and analysts.
    Many thank yous to that company in Carolina!

    So, he got caught pretty much on purpose then? Did he just want his name in the papers?

    What I want to know is how the FBI obtained the emails he sent to himself.

    Is any web mail accessible to the FBI? Does anyone know?

    They get a warrant once theyve made a case and collect it as evidence afterwards. Unless the NSA presents something they need material/bureaucratic/or professional assistance with most likely. If the next 9/11 were being planned by email they would be likely to catch on.

    'Something doesn't add up' about most of the clown terrorists they find. Early on it was a black club with palestinian sympathies and anti-zionist rhetoric ordering immediately threatening things like steel toed boots, etc. Generally the FBI seems to dupe people into fake terror connections to only arrest them at a legally opportune moment. I don't know much about it. Terrorists need to go, but it smells of entrapment to me at times.

    What constitutes a weapon of mass destruction these days? It didn't seem like he was constructing chemical, biological, or nuclear weapons. And what he could "make" (yeah right, this guy would have just blown himself up trying it seems) couldn't do a relatively large amount of damage. Certainly not taking out any dams. They'd probably call those little two-liter pressure bombs you used to make as a kid (2-liter bottle, some Drano and some Al foil) "weapons of mass destruction" these days.
    You know the time is right to take control, we gotta take offense against the status quo

    Not sure probably some newfangled technicality to make terror convictions more 'punishful'. A WMD? I don't know if he was making something that could kill 1000-2000 people with some sort of chemical he released... ostensibly, yes, a WMD. Mebbeh the FBI knoez sumpting we downtz?
