    FBI Arrests Suspected Terror Plotter in Texas

    Federal agents arrested a Saudi student in Texas and charged him with attempting to construct improvised explosives and compiling a list of possible targets, including the home of former President George W. Bush.


    Khalid Ali-M Aldawsari is shown in this undated photo
    made available by the Lubbock County Sheriff's Office on
    Thursday.




    Khalid Ali-M Aldawsari, 20 years old, is charged in a federal criminal complaint with attempting to use a weapon of mass destruction. Mr. Aldawsari is in the U.S. on a 2008 student visa and is enrolled at South Plains College, near Lubbock, Texas.

    Federal Bureau of Investigation agents have scrambled in recent weeks to determine whether Mr. Aldawsari has links to international terror groups and have found none, according to U.S. officials.

    The FBI alleges that electronic surveillance and searches of Mr. Aldawsari's apartment turned up Internet blog postings and a personal journal that expressed his desire for jihad and martyrdom.
    He was trying to buy Tri-Nitro-Phenol, and sulfuric acid and according to other news story's, emailed himself notes on how to create the bombs, possible targets like damns, water treatment plants, nuclear plants.

    Here's the sealed affidavit which outlines pretty much everything.

    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    Werent some of the 9-11 terrorists here on student visa's as well? ......and we still are letting Jihadis in?

    I say its time to pull the plug on student visas from some of these muslim countries or at the very least cut them way back with very
    rigorous background checks.

    Apparently the powers that be will wait until theres another mass killing before they act, but considering this president maybe not even then.

    Guy's kindof a joke, like he was trying to get caught... emailing himself lists of targets? Calling chemical supply companies and likely attempting to order with his own information.

    I never understand that... they do such obvious things... send emails to themselves, write down their plots in journals. I mean, WTF?? Not that I'm complaining... it's just they have a rash of really stupid mofo's. I guess all the smart one's martyred themselves already and they're down to the bottom of the barrel.

    I guess, man. Either that or he wants to go to Guantanamo and be a martyr. Giving your info to a company that only produces chemicals for large businesses etc. Seriously, he just needed to pile up some cash, order from a corrupt company overseas with everything he needed, get a crate delivered in a shipping container, Hell, I make a better terrorist than this guy...

    You act like Oswald was some kind of rocket scientist. He was purdy successful.

    Charles Whitman was a screwball and he scored numerous hits, in Austin.

    So, why is there is propensity for some people--mostly Libbos--to blow these clowns off?

    Wait... wait...

    So its easy to be a terrorist... because idiots have done it in the past.
    Meaning these 'moron' terrorists are just as serious.
    Or is it that enforcement and investigation sucks?

    The implications of what you say fire in many different conflicting directions and as far as I've known you you seem to self refute in many ways.

    Why do you give a crap if I blow a clown off for getting caught?

    And did they have the patriot act back then?

    This right here, just sets off the "something isnt adding up" meter.
    Jackboots always come in matched pairs, a left boot and a right boot.
