Federal authorities arrested Hashar Jallal Taheb, 21, from Cumming, GA, after he allegedly plotted to attack the White House.

From The Atlanta Journal-Constitution:

Hasher Jallal Taheb, 21, of Cumming, was taken into custody in Gwinnett County while allegedly trying to exchange his vehicle for explosives. He later appeared in court in downtown Atlanta in the case brought by the FBI’s Joint Terrorism Task Force. Authorities said Taheb was acting alone and they made no accusation that he had ties to any terrorist group. He was arrested after a tip from a resident who said the young man had been radicalized.

Taheb’s alleged attack on the White House was supposed to take place around Thursday and involve various explosives and firearms, though even days before he claimed he had still never fired a gun in his life, according to the criminal complaint. He said he could learn fast, the document said. Authorities also said he planned to travel to the Islamic State territory but acknowledged he didn’t have a passport.

“All potential threats have been neutralized and were under control from the inception of this case,” said U.S. Attorney Byung J. “BJay” Pak, who added that authorities would take no questions on the investigation, which is ongoing.

The criminal complaint accuses Taheb of plotting to destroy a government building, which is punishable by five to 20 years. The document said a community member contacted law enforcement in March 2018 about him.

The charges detailed what Taheb planned to do to the White House:

On Aug. 25, 2018, Taheb allegedly put his vehicle up for sale to fund a trip. An FBI informant reached out to show interest and met with the suspect days later.

Taheb allegedly said he planned to travel to “hijra,” a term said to refer to Islamic State territory.

He also told the informant he wanted to attack the White House and Statue of Liberty in jihadist attacks, authorities said. At the beginning of December, Taheb arranged a meeting with the informant and an undercover FBI agent, the complaint said.

“Taheb explained that jihad was an obligation, that he wanted to do as much damage as possible, and that he expected to be a ‘martyr,’” the complaint said.

A few days later, there was another meeting in Alpharetta, during which Taheb allegedly showed the FBI worker a composition notebook with a hand-drawn map of the ground floor of the West Wing in the White House. Taheb seemed to believe the informant and FBI worker would join his plot if they could find weapons, according to the document.

By mid-December, Taheb had allegedly broadened the scope of places he wanted to attack to include the Washington Monument, the Lincoln Memorial and a synagogue. He said he wanted to use handguns, IEDs, an AT-4 anti-armor weapon and hand grenades.

FBI agents met with Taheb on Wednesday in a parking lot for a weapons and car exchange. Taheb hoped to receive “semi-automatic rifles, explosive devices and an AT-4.” Another informant had the weapons in a tractor-trailer and presented them to Taheb. He took them in a backpack and the agents arrested him.

FBI agents searched Taheb’s home on Wednesday. He supposedly lived with his mom.

Ah yes….looks like yer typical Forsyth County native doesn’t he.

I wonder which country he is actually from and maybe…if he is also a Mormon or B’hai religious fanatic. You must remember them fundamentalist mormons sparked a war with the Chigs so they have form!

    I’m guessing someone named Hashar Jallal Taheb would attract a bit of attention in Forsyth county. I did read he’d become radicalized and changed his name. I’m pretty sure Cumming hasn’t had this much attention since Oprah took her show there in the late 80’s.

How many lone wolves does it take to make a pack?

What middle-eastern muzzie shithole did this “Georgia man” (or his parents) crawl out of?

Taheb was recruited and groomed by the FBI for his role in this FBI plot. The FBI didn’t discover anything but a sucker.

    This idiot was a wannabe that ended up on the FBI radar due to a tip.
    Good that they arrested him but he had zero resources and apparently brains and the media response is a tremendous over reaction.
    Way overblown by all involved.

      Agreed. When I heard the first reports it was clear they didn’t crack a case so much as lay a trap that only a moron would fall into. I actually feel sorry for this simp. His IQ must be of the charts – probably fell of the chart and rolled under the couch.

Another informant had the weapons in a tractor trailer and presented them to Taheb. He took them in a backpack and the agents arrested him.

The Bofors AT-4 is just over a meter long. What the hell of backpack does this guy have?

Muzzscum.
What Taheb tried to do outside the government, freshmen Congresswomen Omar and Tlaib will try to do from inside the Government, with the heklp of Alexandria Ocasio Cortez, or course..
The Taliban are firmly in the building

“He was arrested after a tip from a resident who said the young man had been radicalized.”

Radicalized. Dang Lutherans. Not all Lutherans are terrorists, but all terrorists….

“He later appeared in court in downtown Atlanta in the case brought by the FBI’s Joint Terrorism Task Force.”

Unlike the corrupt top brass, it’s nice to know the hard working rank n file FBI agents still understand their job description.

I certainly hope the FBI apologized for arresting this person and treated him with kindness and understanding. Don’t want to offend our Muslim-American population.

“But what was the motive? That’s still remains a puzzle as authorities seek to understand the young man’s motivation.”

Headline “Georgia Man” ie red neck white guy – arrested for plot to blow up white house

Same as the “Kentucky man” Kills wife ie red neck white guy.

no mention that the Kentucky guy was from the middle east just traveling through Kentucky and performed a family honor killing of his wife.

He doesn’t look like the brightest shish on the kebab.

“Georgia man.” In crafting the headline, the writer chose to describe this nutcase as a “Georgia man.”

Good lord.

“Hashar Jallal Taheb“

This is not this “a guy from Georgia”. Yes, those words may be legally true, but they are morally false.
Who brought him here? Who brought his parents here?

One of the earliest items budgeted for by the continental Congress was hostage ransom and tribute payable to the Muslim Pasha who kidnapped American soldiers ceiling near Libya. They were kidnapped and enslaved because they were not Muslim, and we had to pay ransom to recover their bodies and souls, those that survived that is.

Who is inviting and engineering the destruction of our nation?

“Georgia man” my Aunt Fanny. I’m a Georgia man and he don’t look like nobody I know ‘cept some of the people who run the gas stations around here.
