A man on Moroccan descent was arrested today on his way to the US Capitol with what he believed was a suicide vest.
FOX Newsreported:

Authorities have arrested a man on his way to the U.S. Capitol for what he thought would be a suicide attack on one of the nation’s most symbolic landmarks, Fox News has learned exclusively.

The man, in his 30s and of Moroccan descent, was nabbed following a lengthy investigation by the FBI, initiated after he expressed interest in conducting an attack.

It’s unclear how the FBI learned of his aspirations. The man thought undercover FBI agents assisting him in his plot were associates of Al Qaeda. When he was arrested Friday in Washington, he was carrying with him a vest supposedly packed with explosives, but the material inside was not actually dangerous, Fox News was told.

A short time earlier, he had been praying at a mosque in the Washington area. His destination was Capitol Hill.

    damn.. /s/

  2. Wow. This is great reporting Jim – very detailed.

  3. Seems they never managed to hit their real target in 2001. Thanks to the heroic action of Flight 93.

    It is amazing what brainless people think they can do in the name of Allah. Where is more of this story?

  4. #3

    Yeah!!

  5. Let me guess. The FBI found some idiot kid, pumped him full of hate and other propaganda, gave him inert explosives, followed him and then arrested him. gee…in-trap much.

    Now the FBI is going to want more budget, so they can help in-trap more idiot haters. Meanwhile corruption run amok in our own government, and we even have government agents giving weapons to drug cartels south of the border.

  6. So now FBI is aiding Husseen in his ” re-election” ?
    What a drama, just to make him popular

  7. Boooooooooooooooooosh!

  8. Authorities have arrested a man allegedly on his way to the U.S. Capitol for what he thought would be a suicide attack on one of the nation’s most symbolic landmarks, Fox News has learned exclusively.

    The man, in his 30s and of Moroccan descent, was nabbed following a lengthy investigation by the FBI, initiated after he expressed interest in conducting an attack. It’s unclear how the FBI learned of his aspirations.

    The man thought undercover FBI agents assisting him in his plot were associates of Al Qaeda.

    Shown here is the alley near Capitol Hill in Washington, D.C., where a man was arrested on his way, authorities said, to conduct what he thought was a suicide attack on the Capitol.

    When he was arrested Friday in Washington, he was carrying with him a vest supposedly packed with explosives, but the material inside was not actually dangerous, Fox News was told.

    A short time earlier, he had been praying at a mosque in the Washington area. His destination was Capitol Hill.

    The public was never in danger, as he had been under constant surveillance for some time.

    An arrest usually indicates charges have been filed in some form, but it’s unclear when or how charges would have been filed in this case. It’s also unclear if the suspect will be appearing in court Friday. In similar past cases, suspects have made their initial court appearance within hours of their arrest.

    Sites in Washington have long been a target for terrorists, especially self-radicalized extremists caught in FBI stings.

    In September, a Massachusetts man was arrested for allegedly plotting to fly bomb-laden model planes into the Pentagon and U.S. Capitol. FBI agents claiming to be associates of Al Qaeda provided 26-year-old Rezwan Ferdaus with what he thought was explosive material for the remote-controlled planes.

    Nearly a year earlier, a Virginia man was arrested for trying to help Al Qaeda plan multiple bombings against Washington’s Metrorail system. For months, 34-year-old Farooque Ahmed of Ashburn, Va., had been meeting and discussing “jihad” with individuals he thought were affiliated with Al Qaeda, but in fact he was meeting with FBI agents.

    In the past year alone, at least 20 people have been arrested in the United States on terrorism-related charges, according to the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence.

    “Most of the arrests” have involved “lone wolves,” radicalized online and able to use the Internet to build bombs, FBI Director Robert Mueller told the Senate committee last month.

  10. “of Moroccan descent,”

    Did you get that, “of Moroccan descent.”

    We’re given that to swallow precisely because it doesn’t give us the information which we really need, and which we in the counterjihad movement know all to well.

    He’s a MUSLIM.

    The MSM may think they’re pulling the wool over Western eyes. To be sure some remained blinded to the reality of Islam, but that number is getting smaller and smaller with each passing day.

    “Asians” in the UK,
    “Youths” in France,

    We KNOW what they all are. Muslims, Muslims, Muslims, who are intent on colonizing the West by causing trouble.

  11. The White House isn’t on Capitol Hill. Just sayin’……..

  12. The headline just mysteriously changed from White House to Capitol. Auto-correct. ;-)

  13. OT sorry had to post this

    CBO: Longest Period of High Unemployment Since Great Depression

    After three years with unemployment topping 8 percent, the U.S. has seen the longest period of high unemployment since the Great Depression, the Congressional Budget Office noted in a report issued today.

    [Dems Tout GOP Payroll Tax Plan as Political Victory.]

    And, despite some recent good news on the economic front, the CBO is still predicting that unemployment will remain above 8 percent until 2014. The report also notes that, including those who haven’t sought work in the past four weeks and those who are working part-time but seeking full-time employment, the unemployment rate would be 15 percent.

    The CBO made its comments in a report examining the long-term effects of joblessness, and possible policy options to boost employment, including unemployment insurance reforms and job training programs. The report came at the request of Democratic Michigan Rep. Sander Levin, but Republicans quickly jumped on the chance to bash President Obama’s stimulus program, which is also reaching its three-year anniversary today.

    “The stimulus is a stark reminder of how the president got the policies he wanted, and how those policies have failed the American people and are making things worse,” said Texas Republican Rep. Jeb Hensarling.

  14. More Liberty, is there anything that you can’t turn into a conspiracy?

  15. OT again, sorry last one, go to site to read this report.

    America on Verge of Economic Collapse Because of Obama’s Cooked Reports

  16. The man, in his 30s and of Moroccan descent,…

    And his religion is what again? Oh, I’m sorry, you didn’t say what it was the first time.

    Okay…

  17. “. . .he had been praying at a mosque in the Washington area”

    Pray tell . ..which bastion of Islamic peace would this mosque be?

    Dar al-Hijrah in Falls Church VA , you know, dearly departed al-Awlaki’s haunt?
    or perhaps the nearby Islamic Saudi Academy, from which valedictiorian Ahmed Abu Ali, accused of conspiring with Al Qaeda to assassinate President Bush, graduated, whose director suppressed report of sexual abuse of a five-year-old?

  18. “More Liberty, is there anything that you can’t turn into a conspiracy?”

    I’m not saying it is a conspiracy – it’s just how the culture and system works. There is a huge difference between law enforcement trolling islamic websites, finding an idiot that hates us for whatever reason, befriending him, talking him into attacking something, providing him the inert material, and then arresting him compared to finding actual terrorists that are in the planning stage, having their own material support and/or funding, watching them and arresting them.

    While this guy should be thrown in jail if found guilty by a jury of his peers, but the Capital building wasn’t really in jeopardy.
