Saudi Arabian College Student in Texas Charged with Terror Plot

The Washington Post reports that the FBI has arrested a 20-year-old Saudi student attending a college near Lubbock, Texas, on suspicion of planning a terrorist attack using explosive chemicals, possibly against the Dallas home of former President George W. Bush.

The student, Khalid Ali-M Aldawsari, has been charged with the attempted use of a weapon of mass destruction. Aldawsari has been researching online how to construct an improvised explosive device using several chemicals as ingredients.

According to federal authorities “Aldawsari’s diary indicated the young man had been plotting an attack for years and obtained a scholarship so he could come directly to the United State to carry out jihad.”
