The 19 year old man, Mosam Maher Husein Smadi who is a Jordanian citizen, was arrested by the F.B.I. and charged with attempting to use a weapon of mass destruction. He told agents he wanted to commit "violent jihad".
His target was the Fountain Place, a 60-story glass office tower located at 1445 Ross Avenue. This is one of the most well known and visible buildings in downtown Dallas. According to Fox News, the man is in the United States illegally. He was introduced to people he thought were fellow Al-Qaeda members in his attempt to obtain bomb material.
