Jews, Christian, Flemish, MUSLIM man arrested, attempting to use a WMD on Dallas skyscraper
A Jordanian citizen was arrested Thursday and charged with attempting to use a weapon of mass destruction in a Dallas skyscraper, the FBI office said. Hosam Maher Husein Smadi, 19, was arrested near Fountain Place, a 60-story glass office tower located at 1445 Ross Avenue in downtown Dallas, where he placed an inactive car bomb, investigators said. Evidently there are Wells Fargo Bank offices in the building and Smadi was out to target that bank, according to an arrest affidavit. Smadi, who investigators said was heard expressing a desire to commit violent Jihad, has been the focus of an undercover FBI investigation and under continuous surveillance, the FBI said. Investigators said Smadi was in the U.S. illegally and lived and worked in Italy, Texas, which is about 45 miles south of Dallas.
