Yall hear about this shit? It was an FBI setup, but imagine if he actually got a hold of real bad guys with real explosives.. http://www.the33tv.com/news/kdaf-dallas-car-bomb-update-story,0,3296657.story DALLAS -- A 19-year-old Jordanian citizen was arrested this afternoon as he attempted to destroy a skyscraper in downtown Dallas with a car bomb, federal officials said. Hosam Maher Husein Smadi, of Italy, Texas, was arrested by FBI agencies near the Fountain Place, located at 1445 Ross Avenue, after he placed an inactive car bomb by the location, officials said. Officials said the car did not contain any explosives. "Smadi made a decision to act to commit a significant conspicuous act of violence under his banner of 'self-jihad,'" special agent in charge Robert E. Casey, Jr. said in a statement. "He will now face justice." Smadi, who worked and lived in Italy, 45 miles south of Dallas, was in the United States illegally. He is being held in a federal prison on charges of attempting to use a weapon on mass destruction. He will make his initial appearance at 11 a.m. Friday in U.S. District Court before U.S. Magistrate Judge Irma C. Ramirez. In an affidavit released this afternoon, Smadi said he was acting as a solider for Usama Bin Laden and al-Qaida to conduct a violent jihad. He said he was going to commit the jihad "for the sake of God." The 19-year-old told undercover FBI agents that he intended to commit the crime against those he deemed enemies of Islam. Federal officials do not believe Smadi is associated with any other terrorists or terrorist groups. In June, Smadi told federal officials that he identified several potential targets in the Dallas area, but he later told agents that he had changed his mind. A month later, officials said Smadi was driven to Fountain Place, a 60-floor glass building in downtown, by an undercover agent. Once there, he conducted his own reconnaissance of the building. Smadi began to discuss the logistics and timing of the bombing in late August. He told agents that he would have preferred to carry out the attack on Sept. 11, but he decided against it. Instead, he choose to wait until after the month of Ramadan, which ended on Sept. 20. "The identification and apprehension of this defendant, who was acting alone, is a sobering reminder that there are people among us who want to do us grave harm," United State attorney James Jakes said. If convicted of the charge, Smadi could face life in prison and a $250,000 fine.
