Khalid Ali-M Aldawsari was sentenced to life in prison today in Amarillo, for the attempted use of a weapon of mass destruction, the Associated Press reports.
Prosecutors say Aldawsari had collected bomb-making materials and researched possible targets, including former President George W. Bush’s Preston Hollow home. He was convicted of the crime in June.
Investigators say Aldawsari’s goal was to carry out jihad, though his attorneys claimed he was a harmless failure who never came close to attacking anyone.
When your own attorneys are sonning you, it’s probably time to find a new calling.
