Hasher Jallal Taheb, Charged With Plotting White House Attack, Planned To Travel To ISIS Territory



Hasher Jallal Taheb, the 21-year old man arrested in Georgia for plotting an attack on the White House planned for Thursday, told law enforcement that he was planning to travel to territory controlled by the Islamic State, or ISIS.

Taheb has used the name “Hasher McCloud” in the United States, according to sources and civilian data.

AM 750 WSB reports: 

“[U.S. Attorney B.J.] Pak said Taheb intended to use IEDs and an anti-tank rocket to carry out the attacks.

The criminal complaint, which accuses him of plotting to destroy a government building, said a community member contacted law enforcement in March 2018 to say that Taheb had become radicalized.

On Aug. 25, 2018, Taheb allegedly put his vehicle up for sale. An FBI informant reached out to show interest and met with the suspect days later.

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.

He allegedly told the informant he wanted to attack the White House and Statue of Liberty in jihadist attacks.”
