WASHINGTON – Khalid Ali-M Aldawsari, 20, a citizen of Saudi Arabia and resident of Lubbock, Texas, was arrested late yesterday by FBI agents in Texas on a federal charge of attempted use of a weapon of mass destruction in connection with his alleged purchase of chemicals and equipment necessary to make an improvised explosive device (IED) and his research of potential U.S. targets.

According to the affidavit filed in support of the complaint, Aldawsari has been researching online how to construct an IED using several chemicals as ingredients. He has also acquired or taken a substantial step toward acquiring most of the ingredients and equipment necessary to construct an IED and he has conducted online research of several potential U.S. targets, the affidavit alleges. In addition, he has allegedly described his desire for violent jihad and martyrdom in blog postings and a personal journal.

Were were told that 15 of the hijackers...

were from Saudi Arabia on 9/11. So naturally we attacked Afghanistan.
And now this guy is from the same place!
It’s obvious that we need to attack Iran.

Ha! That is funny!

I'm laughing! Thanks for the humor.


a "weapon of mass destruction".

An IED is an improvised bomb. That is all. Id est: Texas DoJ = liars.

My question

is how they had the right to look at what he was browsing, and how they were able to do it.. Did they need a warrant? Did someone rat on him? Or was he set up in another bogus sting.

from the source document:

The affidavit alleges that on Feb. 1, 2011, a chemical supplier reported to the FBI a suspicious attempted purchase of concentrated phenol by a man identifying himself as Khalid Aldawsari. According to the affidavit, phenol is a toxic chemical with legitimate uses, but can also be used to make the explosive trinitrophenol, also known as T.N.P., or picric acid. The affidavit alleges that other ingredients typically used with phenol to make picric acid, or T.N.P., are concentrated sulfuric and nitric acids.


They are looking at everything you are doing right now, pduveen. It has been that way for about a decade or longer. All they need to do is to request a recent internet surfing profile for you if you become a 'person of interest'. Try to envision this as if you were the employee at work, using the corporate network. You think you are at home, but in the technical sense, you are behind a desk in a cubicle inside a corporation. With no privacy and no rights.

However, that is the general treatment for the entire population. In this case, they may have used targeted surveillance, i.e. specific, detailed, intense monitoring of one internet address.

We westerners hardly see the surveillance grid because it doesn't interact with us; we hardly run into it. In China or Iran; it's much easier to 'feel' the presence of this grid.
