Saudi student arrested in plot to bomb bu$h* home
Advertisements [?]
U.S. authorities have arrested a 20-year-old Saudi national on charges he tried to use a weapon of mass destruction and potentially targeted former President George W. Bush, the Justice Department said Thursday.

FBI agents arrested Khalid Ali-M Aldawsari, who was admitted into the United States in 2008 on a student visa, in Texas on Wednesday. The Justice Department accuses him of purchasing chemicals and equipment to make an
improvised explosive device.

Aldawsari, a student at South Plains College near Lubbock, allegedly referred to Bush's Dallas home as a "tyrant's house" and possibly contemplated using dolls to conceal the explosives, the statement said.

He allegedly sent himself a series of emails identifying possible targets, including the homes of three U.S. military troops who had served at the notorious Abu Ghraib prison in Iraq, and reservoir dams in Colorado and California.
