    Man arrested in alleged attempt to bomb Dallas skyscraper

    06:14 PM CDT on Thursday, September 24, 2009

    Staff reports

    DALLAS - Federal authorities arrested a 19-year-old Jordanian citizen whom they said placed an inactive car bomb today at Fountain Place, a 60-story skyscraper in downtown Dallas. Hosam Maher Husein Smadi has repeatedly voiced his intent to serve Usama Bin Laden and al-Qa’ida and commit “violent Jihad,” authorities said in a prepared statement.

    Fountain Place at 1445 Ross Avenue

    “Today’s arrest of Hosam Maher Husein Smadi underscores the FBI’s unwavering commitment to bring to justice persons who attempt to bring harm to citizens of this country and significant danger to this community,” special FBI agent in charge Robert E. Casey, Jr. said in the statement. “Smadi made a decision to act to commit a significant conspicuous act of violence under his banner of ‘self Jihad.’”

    Authorities said that Smadi was under continuous FBI surveillance. Federal agents posed as members of an al-Qa’ida sleeper cell. Smadi, who was in the U.S. illegally, allegedly told them that he came to the country specifically to commit “Jihad for the sake of God.”

    According to authorities, Smadi identified potential Dallas targets in June and allegedly scoped out Fountain Place in July. Authorities said that Smadi lived and worked in Italy, Texas, about 45 miles south of Dallas.

    I just like to poke fun at Austin's finest. Since you opened the can of worms.....

    This Thread Is Worthless Without Pics. Actually I shouldn't tease you might post some.

    Back to the topic, we keep getting little warnings, and while LE appear to be stopping terrorist acts before they are initiated it is just a matter of time before something happens again. I remember a few years ago that several Muslim men were caught in the federal building in downtown Dallas with blueprints of the building and when questioned they had a fraudulent reason for being there. One of my friends who retired as an investigator ran into them taking pictures about half way up the high rise. Security is going to have to be increased at the borders and at high profile targets.

    If he was at the top of the building, they could have just pushed him off and called it an accident.

    Hell, the only people probably not being searched at the border are terrorists. "Unauthorized Drug dealer?" Check. "Illegal?" Check. "Family of four?" Check. "Strange arab looking man with turban?" He's cool, let him pass.
