Democracy Now: Foreign Student Arrested on Terror Charges


A Saudi national in the United States on a student visa has been arrested on terrorism charges in Texas. Khalid Ali-M Aldawsari is accused of purchasing chemicals and equipment with the intent to make a bomb. His alleged targets included former President George W. Bush and three former U.S. military officials stationed at the Abu Ghraib prison in Iraq where scores of Iraqis were tortured. White House spokesperson Jay Carney announced the arrest.

Jay Carney: “The arrest, once again, underscores the necessity of remaining vigilant against terrorism here and abroad. The President thanks the FBI, the Department of Justice, and the rest of our law enforcement, intelligence and Homeland Security professionals who continue to keep us safe and who once again have served with extraordinary skill and with the commitment that their enormous responsibilities demand.”
