Hasher Jallal Taheb, 23, planned to attack the White House with explosives and other weapons, and pleaded guilty on Wednesday “to a charge of attempting to destroy, by fire or an explosive, a building owned by or leased to the United States.”

“Taheb hatched a dangerous plan that would have resulted in unimaginable injury,” said U.S. Attorney Byung J. “BJay” Pak. {snip}


“The FBI also learned that Taheb had begun planning domestic attacks in the United States as part of his desire to engage in ‘jihad,’” according to the Department of Justice.
