    A 20-year-old Saudi Arabian student living in Texas has been arrested by federal agents, who charged him with planning to build bombs for terror attacks in the United States, the Justice Department announced Thursday.

    According to the affidavit, he wrote in his journal that he wanted to found a new terrorist group modeled after Al Qaeda, which he would lead, and he indicated that he had been methodically planning for years to commit a terrorist attack.

    “I excelled in my studies in high school in order to take advantage of an opportunity for a scholarship to America” that was offered by the Saudi Arabian government, investigators said he wrote. “And now, after mastering the English language, learning how to build explosives, and continuous planning to target the infidel Americans, it is time for Jihad.”

    The journal was also said to list “important steps” toward his goal, including obtaining a forged United States birth certificate, applying for a passport and driver’s license, renting cars online, putting bombs in them and taking them to various sites during rush hours, and then leaving the city for a “safe place.”


    The affidavit says that in his journal, Mr. Aldawsari said he was inspired by the speeches of Osama Bin Laden and wrote that the terror attacks of Sept. 11, 2001, had produced a “big change” in his thinking. It also contends that he was the writer of a blog called FromFarAway90, published in a mix of English and Arabic.

    As an American I say that its time for thorough background checks for anyone coming from the Middle East. At times like these I fully support the Patriot Act and any legislation related to it.

    They're not talking about the Boston bomb plot.

    Though they are wrong to use the word arrested; this Saudi has been convicted back in November.

    So what? I'm 100% positive that the perpetrator is from the ME. And frankly I don't give two ****s about their feelings, they earned their reputation and it's there to stay.

    This kind of thing goes on a lot more often then we, as the public, hear about.

    Not just limited to Islamists obviously. People forget the stirling work our security services do, they're only ever remembered when they bugger something up.
