Omar Faraj Saeed Al Hardan, who entered the United States in 2009 as a refugee has been convicted in a plot to bomb two shopping malls. Obama later granted Hardan permanent legal status, allowing him to remain in the United States. At the time of his plotting, Hardan was applying for citizenship so he could collect welfare and vote for Hillary, I assume. Hardan pleaded guilty to one count of providing material support to terrorists.
Federal agents foiled Al Hardan’s plans when they arrested him in January and discovered training material on how to build remote detonators, multiple cells phones, electronic circuitry components and corresponding tools. Officials also found, what the Justice Department described as, “a prayer list for committing Jihad and becoming a martyr and the ISIL flag.”
The government began its investigation into the 24-year-old refugee in June 2014.
Law enforcement used a Confidential Human Source (CHS) in its investigation into Al Harden’s activities. Al Hardan and the CHS, according to the Justice Department, discussed traveling overseas to support ISIS and Al Harden told the CHS that he wanted to learn how to build remote detonators for improvised explosive devices. Al Harden further claimed that he had taught himself how to make such explosives by viewing online videos.
In 2014, Hardan pledged his allegiance to ISIS and his social media accounts were peppered with postings giving support to the terrorist group.
“I want to blow myself up. I want to travel with the Mujahidin. I want to travel to be with those who are against America. I am against America.”
Hardan is being held without bail until his sentencing. He faces up to 20 years in prison and a $250,000 dollar fine.
