ISIS Plot to Assassinate George W. Bush in Dallas Is Uncovered

ISIS Plot to Assassinate , George W.

Bush in Dallas Is Uncovered.

'Forbes' reports that the plot is detailed in an FBI search warrant from March that was recently unsealed.

It describes how an Iraqi native with ties to ISIS traveled to Dallas from OH this year to scout out former President George W.

Bush's residence.

The man allegedly intended to recruit others in the assassination plot and to smuggle them into the U.S. across the southern border.

Shihab Ahmed Shihab Shihab had been living in Columbus since 2020.

Further, Shihab stated that he wanted to be involved in the actual attack and assassination of former President Bush ... , FBI Affidavit, via NBC News.

... and did not care if he died as he would be proud to have been involved in killing former President Bush, FBI Affidavit, via NBC News.

The FBI was able to uncover the plot using informants despite Shihab's encrypted messages sent through WhatsApp.

It’s clear this was a sophisticated counterterrorism operation with a lot of moving parts.

It was both far reaching and unique in its targeting, Seamus Hughes, Program on Extremism at George Washington University, via 'Forbes'.

It also shows that while the debate on so called “going dark” can be overcome through the use of undercover operatives, it’s labor intensive but possible, Seamus Hughes, Program on Extremism at George Washington University, via 'Forbes'.

"Going dark” refers to when law enforcement is unable to access data on smart devices that are encrypted.

It shows that while domestic terrorism rightly takes a good amount of counterterrorism focus, the threats are not there alone, Seamus Hughes, Program on Extremism at George Washington University, via 'Forbes'.

Bush recently made headlines when he mistakenly referenced the U.S. invasion of Iraq instead of the recent invasion of Ukraine during an event.

The result is the absence of checks and balances in Russia and the decision of one man to launch a wholly unjustified and brutal invasion of Iraq, Former President George W.

Bush, via Business Insider
