A young Georgia man tried to plot an attack on the White House and other government buildings in Washington - without any weapons or knowledge to do so, according to federal authorities.

According to U.S. Attorney Byung J.

Citing an affidavit, Taheb allegedly intended "to attack the White House, and other targets of opportunity in the Washington, D.C., area, by using explosive devices".

Hasher Jallal Taheb has been charged with intent to destroy by fire or explosives a building owned by the US.

Travis Scott spoke to Kap before taking Super Bowl gig
Then, his girlfriend Nessa co-signed that post and made everyone aware that what was being reported were lies. Rapper Travis Scott confirmed that he will perform during the Super Bowl's Halftime show with Maroon 5.

On Dec. 7, Taheb allegedly showed the undercover operative a hand-drawn diagram of the White House's West Wing in a composition notebook and asked for help with obtaining weapons and explosives for the attack, the complaint states. 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, ' meaning he expected to die during the attack".

"He said the group would fight to the end and make it a big bang", the charging document states, adding that he discussed having a "base" for his group, and from there, giving speeches "to motivate people" and show clips of "oppressed Muslims". The undercover agent and Taheb talked about the guns, how to arm and detonate the explosives and how to use the anti-tank rocket, the affidavit says.

The attack was supposed to come Thursday and, the complaint states, Mr. Taheb was arrested immediately after picking up the planned weapons - "three semi-automatic assault rifles, three explosive devices with remote initiation and one AT-4", an anti-tank rocket launcher. Days later, the pair met up, where the suspect allegedly told the informant that he wanted to visit "hijra"- a reference to territory controlled by ISIS - and was eager to offload the vehicle to pay for a passport.

"But Taheb was arrested Wednesday after a meeting with the Federal Bureau of Investigation agent and two confidential informants in the parking lot of a store in Buford, Georgia, where he exchanged his vehicle for "three semi-automatic assault rifles, three explosive devices with remote initiation and one AT-4", a single-shot smoothbore weapon", the document states.
