Mass Casualty Attack on White House Foiled
21-year-old Georgia man planned to use anti-tank rocket, explosives
An Atlanta-area man has been accused of plotting to destroy the White House and other government buildings in Washington, D.C.
The Atlanta Journal Constitution reported the suspect is Hasher Jallal Taheb of Cumming, Georgia.
The report said all threats were neutralized and the suspect, who was arrested in Gwinnett County and briefly appeared in court Wednesday, apparently was working alone.
The FBI’s criminal complaint accuses him of plotting terror in Washington.
It explained a community member contacted law enforcement last march to warn that Taheb was radicalized.
Then in August, an FBI informant reached out to him when he apparently put his vehicle up for sale.
“Taheb allegedly said he planned to travel to ‘hijra,’ a term said to refer to Islamic State territory and he was selling the car to fund the trip. But he didn’t have a passport,” the report said.
Then he allegedly said he wanted to attack the White House and Statue of Liberty.
WXIA-TV reported Taheb, 21, was charged with planning a “mass casualty” event in Washington.
U.S. Attorney B.J. Pak said Taheb was arrested at the culmination of a year-long investigation.

He was planning to use explosive devices “and an anti-tank rocket,” the report said.
Court documents indicate Taheb had a “hand-drawn diagram of ground floor of the West Wing.”
Other locations targeted for destruction were the Washington Monument and Lincoln Memorial.
He’s facing charges under Title 18USC 844(f)(1), an “attempt to damage by means of an explosive any building owned, possessed, or leased by the United States or any department or agency thereof, or any institution or organization receiving federal financial assistance.”
