Khalifi, from Morocco, is living in the US illegally.
But, don’t worry. Obama says Islamists are decimated.
The arrest of an Ohio man allegedly plotting an ISIS-inspired attack on the U.S. Capitol sent shockwaves across the country last week. 20-year-old Christopher Lee Cornell is now facing charges for attempting to kill U.S. government officials.
Although he’s been labeled a lone wolf, he’s definitely not the only terror suspect caught up in an FBI undercover sting. An FBI operation foiled another plot to attack the U.S. Congress.
The video is convincing. Watch the man sitting in the front seat. Amine el Khalifi, subject of the sting, “I’ve thought about this a long time.”
A hidden camera is rolling inside a car, Amine el Khalifi sounds like his mind’s made up.
El Khalifi can be heard saying, “Listen, I’m going to go it alone. You’re not going to go with me. I’m going to put everything on my body and inside a real place. Maybe uh, Capitol or somewhere who… with main people.”
A rare, frightening look inside the mind of a would-be suicide bomber ready to strap on a vest with explosives and blow himself up at the U.S. Capitol. A lone wolf stopped by a FBI undercover sting.
FBI Assistant Director Andrew McCabe says, “The difference here is not just the clear intent to strike us here, but the pursuit of the capability to be able to conduct that attack, and I think the tape shows that very well.”
El Khalifi is an unemployed DJ seeking revenge on the U.S. for its war on terror. He’s convinced God’s telling him to kill. “This is not about happiness. This is about Allah. This is not about, you know, us anymore. It’s about Allah.”
El Khalifi is in hurry. The Moroccan national is living illegally in the U.S., dealing with assault charges. “I”m done. I’m done. My work is done in this life.”
El Khalifi told the judge he just wanted to praise Allah.
