An Amarillo jury has found a Middle Eastern man guilty of trying to build a weapon of mass destruction
Saudi national Khalid Aldawsari came to the United States as a student to study chemical engineering at Texas Tech, but his interests turned to jihad instead of science. In the months before his arrest, Khalid Ali-M Aldawsari collected bomb-making supplies and instructional videos and made a list of targets, from nuclear power plants to the home of a former president. Aldawsari has been convicted of attempting to use a weapon of mass destruction. He faces up to life in prison.
