    WASHINGTON (AP) — The FBI has arrested a 20-year-old Saudi student in Texas suspected of planning a terrorist attack using explosive chemicals. The FBI says his possible targets included the Dallas home of former President George W. Bush.

    Khalid Ali-M Aldawsari, attending college near Lubbock, Texas, was charged with attempted use of a weapon of mass destruction. Federal prosecutors say he had been researching online how to construct an improvised explosive device using several chemicals as ingredients.

    Federal authorities say Aldawsari's diary indicated the young man had been plotting an attack for years and obtained a scholarship so he could come directly to the United States to carry out jihad.
    Aldawsari is expected to appear in federal court in Lubbock on Friday morning.

    In the case of this new Jihadist who is featured in the OP, the reason we let him in is so that he could acquire and education, learn English and use his skills to target America with more violent Jihad.

    SOME immigrants actually want to come here to further their lives and the lives of their loved ones. Maybe even to help the world.

    Then again, some fuckwads come here to end lives.

    Personally, I believe we have a right and even an obligation to screen these folks carefully prior to their admission in the hope that maybe we can exclude as many of the latter set as possible.

    I believe we have the obligation to do even more....

    Not only do I believe they ought to be screened, I believe they ought to be isolated and quaranteened for a minimum of six months upon their arrival; during which time they would be forcibly exposed to Big Macs, pork chops, pizza, baseball, the NFL, pornography, and many other facets of American culture and society. Those that embrace those things would be allowed to stay. Those that don't would be sent home.

    I do. Were you aware that if you import an animal (dog, horse, etc...) into this country from a reputable breeder abroad that the animal is required to have a ton of paperwork, and still be quarantined for a period of time (a minimum of 30 days up to 6 months I believe) before it's allowed into the country? Why are we more concerned about these four footed animals coming in from abroad than we are about the two footed ones?

    Next 9/11 will not be from airplanes. It will be via a truckload of middle eastern people with taco filled bellies
