Saudi Citizen Charged For Suspected Bombing Plot In Texas
The FBI arrested a 20-year-old Saudi Arabian college student in Texas, who was suspected of planning a terrorist attack using chemical explosives, targeting President Bush’s home in Dallas.
Khalid Aldawsari, a 20-year-old college student near Lubbock, Texas, allegedly targeted the Dallas home of former President George W. Bush. He was arrested late Tuesday on a federal charge of attempted use of a weapon of mass destruction.
“Yesterday’s arrest demonstrates the need for and the importance of vigilance and the willingness of private individuals and companies to ask questions and contact the authorities when confronted with suspicious activities,” said James T. Jacks, U.S. Attorney for the Northern District of Texas.
