Even after being left in tatters by Democrats, loaded with deep-state traitors by Obama, and disgraced by Comey and his gang, every now and then, the FBI gets something right…
Authorities in Georgia arrested a man Wednesday they say was planning to attack the White House.
An FBI agent’s affidavit says 21-year-old Hasher Jallal Taheb of Cumming was arrested in a sting Wednesday after he traded his car for weapons.
He’s charged with attempting to damage or destroy a building owned by the U.S. using fire or an explosive.
U.S. Attorney Byung J. Pak says Taheb planned to use an improvised explosive device and anti-tank rocket. The affidavit says Taheb planned to die in the attack.
The affidavit says local law enforcement contacted the FBI in March after getting a tip from a member of the community.
The tipster said Taheb had become radicalized, changed his name and planned to travel abroad.
The FBI special agent in charge of the Atlanta Field Office, Chris Hacker, said the investigation had taken a year.
His other targets ‘of opportunity’ were the Washington Monument, Lincoln Memorial and an unnnamed but specific synagogue in Washington D.C..
Taheb had put his car up for sale in August intending to travel for ‘hijra’, an Islamic term for emigration used by ISIS to encourage its followers to move to its former territory in Iraq and Syria.
Hasher was unable to travel because he did not have a passport.
An FBI agent answered the ad and started the sting which ended in his arrest.
