Saudi arrested in Texas on WMD charges - Dubya's home possible target

The Department of Justice has stated in a press release that Khalid Ali-M Aldawsari, 20, a citizen of Saudi Arabia and resident of Lubbock, Texas has been arrested on a charge of attempted use of a weapon of mass destruction.

The DoJ states that Aldawsari was researching online how to make chemical IEDs, and had already puchased much of the chemical ingredients and hardware to complete the construction of the weaponry.

Aldawsari has also allegedly stated his wish for violent jihad and martyrdom in various blog postings as well as in his personal journal.


According to an affidavit filed in support of the criminal complaint, in a number of e-mails Aldawsari sent to himself, he conducted research on various targets and e-mailed himself information on these locations and people.

One of the documents he sent himself, with the subject line listed as “Targets,” allegedly contained the names and home addresses of three American citizens who had previously served in the U.S. military and had been stationed for a time at Abu Ghraib prison in Iraq.
