Muslim arrested in Capitol Building suicide bomb plot, 13 year illegal

Why would he want to bomb the Capitol on a Friday – the day Muslims convert it into a mosque? This guy was in the U.S. illegally since 1999!  Isn’t it time to start accounting for all visa recipients? Right, DHS would rather harass American citizens.

WASHINGTON – A 29-year-old man residing in Alexandria, Va., was arrested today for allegedly attempting to detonate a bomb in a suicide attack on the U.S. Capitol Building as part of what he intended to be a terrorist operation.

Amine El Khalifi, an immigrant from Morocco who is illegally present in the United States, was charged today by criminal complaint with attempting to use a weapon of mass destruction against property that is owned and used by the United States.  He made his initial appearance today at 4:15 p.m. before Judge T. Rawles Jones Jr.  If convicted, El Khalifi faces a maximum penalty of life in prison.

The arrest of El Khalifi was the culmination of an undercover operation during which he was closely monitored by the FBI Washington Field Office’s Joint Terrorism Task Force (JTTF).  The explosives and firearm that he allegedly sought and attempted to use had been rendered inoperable by law enforcement and posed no threat to the public.

“The complaint filed today alleges that Amine El Khalifi sought to blow himself up in the U.S. Capitol Building,” said U.S. Attorney MacBride. “El Khalifi allegedly believed he was working with al-Qaeda and devised the plot, the targets and the methods on his own.”

This individual allegedly followed a twisted, radical ideology that is not representative of the Muslim community in the United States,” said FBI Assistant Director in Charge McJunkin. “He became known to the JTTF because of his stated desire to carry out attacks in the U.S., specifically, the U.S. Capitol building.  This arrest is the result of dedicated special agents, task force officers and intelligence analysts from the FBI and our partner law enforcement agencies that make up the JTTF.”

The DOJ, like the FBI and NYPD have all been castrated by part of the Muslim community in the United States who defend that supposedly radical and definitely twisted ideology.

According to the criminal complaint affidavit, in January 2011, a confidential human source reported to the FBI that El Khalifi met with other individuals at a residence in Arlington, Va., on Jan. 11, 2011.  During this meeting, one individual produced what appeared to be an AK-47, two revolvers and ammunition.  El Khalifi allegedly expressed agreement with a statement by this individual that the “war on terrorism” was a “war on Muslims” and said that the group needed to be ready for war.

Isn’t that what terror-linked CAIR keeps saying? Is CAIR inciting Muslims to wage jihad on American soil?

The affidavit alleges that El Khalifi sought to be associated with an armed extremist group, and on Dec 1, 2011, he was introduced by a man he knew as “Hussien” to an individual named “Yusuf,” who was, in reality, an undercover law enforcement officer.  Throughout December 2011 and January 2012, El Khalifi allegedly proposed to carry out a bombing attack. His proposed targets included a building that contained U.S. military offices, as well as a synagogue, U.S. Army generals and a restaurant frequented by military officials.

During meetings with the undercover officer, El Khalifi allegedly handled an AK-47and indicated his desire to conduct an operation in which he would use a gun and kill people face-to-face.  He also allegedly selected a restaurant in Washington, D.C., for a bombing attack; handled an explosive as an example of what could be used in the attack; conducted surveillance to determine the best place and time for the bombing and purchased materials as part of the planned operation.

On Jan. 7, 2012, “Hussien” informed El Khalifi that he was an al-Qaeda operative.  El Khalifi allegedly discussed the possibility that his planned bombing of the restaurant would be followed by a second attack against a military installation to be conducted by others who El Khalifi believed to be associated with al-Qaeda. The affidavit alleges that El Khalifi understood that his attack on the restaurant would be part of an al-Qaeda operation that would include both his restaurant bombing and the attack against a military installation.

The affidavit alleges that on Jan. 15, 2012, El Khalifi stated that he had modified his plans for his attack.  Rather than conduct an attack on a restaurant, he wanted to conduct a suicide attack at the U.S. Capitol Building. That same day at a quarry in West Virginia, as a demonstration of the effects of the proposed suicide bomb operation, El Khalifi dialed a cell phone number that he believed would detonate a bomb placed in the quarry.  The test bomb detonated, and El Khalifi expressed a desire for a larger explosion in his attack.  He also selected Feb. 17, 2012, as the day of the operation, according to the affidavit.

The affidavit alleges that over the next month, El Khalifi traveled to the U.S. Capitol Building on multiple occasions to conduct surveillance, choosing the spot where he would be dropped off to enter the building for the martyrdom operation, the specific time for the attack and the method he would use to avoid attracting the attention of law enforcement. El Khalifi also asked Hussien to remotely detonate the bomb he would be wearing on the day of the attack if El Khalifi encountered problems with security officers, and to provide El Khalifi with a gun that he could use during the attack to shoot any officers who might attempt to stop him.

On February 17, 2012, El Khalifi allegedly traveled to a parking garage near the U.S. Capitol Building.  El Khalifi took possession of a MAC-10 automatic weapon and put on a vest containing what he believed to be a functioning bomb.  Unbeknownst to El Khalifi, both the weapon and the bomb had been rendered inoperable by law enforcement.  El Khalifi walked alone from the vehicle toward the United States Capitol, where he intended to shoot people and detonate the bomb.  El Khalifi was arrested and taken into custody before exiting the parking garage.

El Khalifi came to the U.S. when he was 16 years old and is unemployed and not believed to be associated with al-Qaida. He had been under investigation for about a year and had overstayed his visitor visa, which expired in 1999, making him in the country illegally, according to court documents.

Before settling on a plot to conduct a suicide bombing in the Capitol, El Khalifi considered blowing up an office building in Alexandria, where military officials worked and a restaurant in Washington to target military officials who gathered there. He even purchased supplies that included nails for the operation, according to the affidavit.

Later, when he settled on bombing the Capitol, El Khalifi asked his associates for more explosives that could be detonated by dialing a cellphone number. In January, he unknowingly told authorities he wanted to know if an explosion would be large enough to destroy an entire building.

A former landlord in Arlington said he believed El Khalifi was suspicious and called police a year and a half ago.

Frank Dynda said when he told El Khalifi to leave, the suspect said he had a right to stay and threatened to beat up Dynda. The former landlord said he thought El Khalifi was making bombs, but police told him to leave the man alone. Dynda had El Khalifi evicted in 2010.

El Khalifi had at least one man staying with him and claimed he was running a luggage business from the apartment, Dynda said, doubting that was true because he never saw any bags.

“I reported to police I think he’s making bombs,” Dynda said. “I was ready to get my shotgun and run him out of the building, but that would have been a lot of trouble.”

Two people briefed on the matter told The Associated Press the FBI has had him under surveillance around the clock for several weeks. They spoke on a condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to speak publicly.

More evidence of the FBI’s castration by Muslims.

Dar Al-Hijrah Islamic Center imam Johari Abdul-Malik, who along with other Muslim leaders meets regularly with the FBI, said he was contacted by an agency official and told that Khalifi was not someone he needed to worry about.

He said the official told him that Khalifi was “not a regular at your mosque or any mosque in the area.”

Police are close to arresting one of El Khalifi’s associates on charges unrelated to the terror conspiracy, the counterterrorism official said. The associate was said to also be a Moroccan, living here illegally. Police are investigating others El Khalifi associated with, but not because they believe the associates were part of a terror conspiracy, the official said.

Why are supposed counterterrorism officials sharing information about pending arrests and investigations? Especially to reporters who work with Muslims to further gut counterterrorism capabilities in the U.S.?

Get ready for Muslim whining about entrapment and excuse-making for one of their co-religionists acting in the name of Islam. Clearly there are Muslims in the U.S. ready, willing, and prepping for jihad on American soil. It’s not blowback. It’s dictated in the Koran.

It is undoubtedly further evidence that immigration is a major threat to the future of the U.S. and that ICE isn’t doing its job. This Muslim should have been deported in 1999. Now taxpayers will have to provide him halal meals and prayer mats for the next 30 years.

  1. The FBI’s job is not to defend and apologize for Islam or for the acts of Muslims taken individually or as a whole. The role of the FBI is to solve crimes dispassionately, without taking a side.

    Know your job. Do your job. Don’t try to do Obama’s job, or the Democrat’s job, or CAIR’s job.

  2. It is a wonder that the FBI can do there job at all due to the good for nothing leader MULLER kissing the wigger and Napolitano’s rear ends. We need another Elliot Ness to run the FBI who ignores the IDIOTS running the GOVT. from there BROOM CLOSETS. LOCK AND LOAD.

  3. 8 years ago we traveled from Rhode Island to New York by train. No security check of our bags even though we traveled through the tunnels under New York. I send an email to TSA and they thinked me for reporting but I bet they are still not checking bags.

  4. [...] Muslim arrested in Capitol Building suicide bomb plot, 13 year illegal « Creeping Sharia [...]

  5. Years ago when visiting Washington I asked my Sister what are all those funny shaped churches, and what is the center of Islamic teaching. We didn’t pay much attention, but if I am not mistaken this is where these extreme murderers camped first. Close to our government. I wonder how many work in the White Hose, and how many sit in our Congress, or Pentagon. ? I am sure the true answer would wake us up to the plans and plots of this devious group of murderers.Time for action. Watch careful in your own community. School boards, taxi service, even Doctors. Beware of Muslims bearing gifts.

  6. I wonder how long it will be before one of these idiots gets away with pulling off a suicide act. The Time Square Bomber came the closest and that was because he didn’t try to commit suicide and ran from his failed device. If he has stayed with the bomb it would have gone off.

  7. Do you remember when he said, “We can absorb another 9/11″?

    If any nation wants to attack the United States with chemical, biological, or electromagnetic pulse weapons, it need not fear nuclear retaliation as long as it has no nuclear weapons and abides by the Non Proliferation Treaty, Obama has announced. So, as New Yorkers are coughing their lungs out from mustard gas or dying in the streets of biological weapons, they will know that their government will not use nuclear weapons to retaliate against their murderers.
    In effect, Obama has said if you are a signatory to the nonproliferation treaty and do not have nuclear weapons, we will not hit you with nuclear bombs even if you unleash poison gas or biological microbes in crowed American cities or cripple our economy by a massive electromagnetic pulse.
    His incredible announcement amounts to a green light for anti-American nations to hit our cities with gas or poisons resting secure in the knowledge that we will not use our nuclear arsenal to reply.
    The Nuclear Policy review, issued by the Pentagon yesterday said that “the U.S. does not use or threaten to use nuclear weapons against non-nuclear states party to the NPT (Non Proliferation Treaty) and [who are] meeting their obligations.” Defense Secretary Robert Gates went on to say that “there is a limited range of contingencies in which U.S. nuclear weapons may have a role to stop an attack with conventional or chemical or biological weapons.” He said that these contingencies only included countries “that possess nuclear weapons or that do not comply with their nonproliferation obligations.” In other words, if Iran, India, Pakistan, or North Korea hits us with chemical weapons, we will reply with nuclear retaliation. But if any other nation (like a Taliban-controlled Afghanistan) does so, we will only use conventional weapons to retaliate.
    Republicans should reply by introducing a bill in the Senate committing the United States to a nuclear response should any nation attack us with biological, chemical, or electromagnetic pulse weapons. Let the Democrats vote against it. Let them filibuster it. Let them explain why we will not use our strongest weapons to deter an attack that could kill millions of our citizens or immobilize our entire economy!
    Obama’s motivations for this absurd policy are plain enough. He wants to up the ante for Iran and make it clear that the Islamic Republic can develop crippling weapons for use against the United States without going nuclear. He wants to invest chemical, biological, and electromagnetic pulse weaponry with an impunity that can only be obtained at the price of nuclear virginity.
    But think about the consequences of his policy! Are we really going to overlook so horrendous an attack and confine our response to cruise missiles with conventional warheads or a few divisions of American soldiers? Is it really material to our nation whether millions of our fellow citizens die of a nuclear bomb or are slain by chemical or biological weaponry?
    Obama has violated the Ronald Reagan rule that a president must “never say never.” He has eliminated the ambiguity which has kept us safe for decades and made it clear that our nation will not use its full resources to defend its citizenry even if millions are obliterated by heinous biological or chemical weaponry.
    He has made a big mistake and the Republicans must pounce on it.

  8. and had overstayed his visitor visa, which expired in 1999, making him in the country illegally, ………………………..same as 9-11 mass murderers- WHY after 11 years haven’t we FIXED THIS?????

    “There is a world that works. Most of it, but not all of it is in the private sector, and there is a world that fails, most of it, but all of it, is in the public sector. I’ll give you one single example: How many of you have ever gone online to check a package at UPS or FedEx? (most of audience holds up hands)

    “I want to drive this home. This is not a theory. It is a practical reality that we have the technology that enables us to track between UPS and FedEx – we track 24 MILLION packages a day, while they are moving, and we allow you to find out where they are for free. That’s the world that works.

    “Now here’s the world that fails: the federal government today cannot find 11 MILLION illegal immigrants, even if they are sitting still. [Huge applause - for the first time Newt smiles]. Now I have a simple proposal. We send a package to everyone who is here illegally. When they open it, we pull it up on the computer. We know where they are.

    “Let me say for my friends in the news media, that was hyperbole and we don’t need a fact check.” [Huge applause and some boos]

    We won the Second World War from December 7, 1941 to August 1945.

    I want you to lock this in your heads as an example of what America can do when you unleash the American people.

    In 44 months, three years and eight months, we defeated Nazi Germany, fascist Italy, and Imperial Japan, 44 months.

    Recently, it took 23 years to add a fifth runway to the Atlanta airport.

    When people say you really can’t control the border by January 1, 2014, they are describing the America that can’t.

    That is the establishment, America, tied up in bureaucracy, tied up in red tape, tied up in incompetence, tied up in interest groups.
