An Iraqi refugee who planned to carry out terror attacks with bombs he built in Las Vegas was busted in an elaborate FBI sting teaching agents to make IEDs with skills he learned in Iraq.
Ahmad Suhad Ahmad, who ran a mechanic shop in Tuscon, was a refugee who arrived in the US from Iraq more than ten years ago. Ahmad was thwarted by the FBI because the bureau had set up an elaborate sting operation.
Funny how I’ve not seen this from any national US MSM news outlet… Hmmm, wondering why?
From the Daily Mail:
An Iraqi refugee living in the US built two homemade bombs in a Las Vegas condominium which he planned to use in a deadly terror attack, DailyMail.com can reveal.
But Ahmad Suhad Ahmad was thwarted by the FBI because the bureau had set up the whole thing as an elaborate sting operation, according to bombshell court documents.
Ahmad is accused of showing undercover FBI agents how to connect the blasting caps and where to place the C-4 on the bombs – intended to hit a target in Mexico.
According to the paperwork filed at the US District Court in Tuscon, Arizona, Ahmad, is also accused of teaching ‘the making and use of an explosive, destructive device, or weapon of mass destruction’, to another person between March and April 2017.
He allegedly provided an undercover FBI operative with homemade bomb recipes and taught them how to construct ‘remote-detonating bombs’.
Ahmad told a confidential FBI source how to detonate a bomb using a cell phone with a removable battery – a trick he said he learned during the war in Iraq, the papers allege.
‘Ahmad said the bombs were easy to make,’ it states. More
What a way for him to thank the country who took him in and provided safety and shelter. A huge thank you to the FBI for stopping this terrorist. Every day they do things like this to save our lives, and rarely can they talk about or even get credit for it. Many brave FBI agents risk their lives to go undercover in operations like this one. And shame on the national MSM for ignoring a news item because it goes against the scenario they are trying to shove down the throats of Americans.
