The New York Post reports:

A Saudi man has been arrested for allegedly attempting to make bombs for possible use on a series of US targets, including the Dallas home of former President George W. Bush, the Department of Justice said Thursday.

Khalid Ali-M Aldawsari, 20, a Saudi national and a legal resident of Texas, was arrested late Wednesday and faces charges of attempted use of a weapon of mass destruction.

Aldawarsi allegedly spent time doing online research about how to make a chemical-based improvised explosive device (IED), according to the affidavit unsealed in the Northern District of Texas…

An excerpt from the purported diary showed Aldawarsi’s desire to target Americans.

“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,” it read in part.

As of this writing, Aldawarsi’s motive remains unknown.
