Hasher Jallal Taheb came to the FBI's attention after local law enforcement in the Atlanta area reported that a community member said he had become "radicalized." An FBI informant and an undercover agent met Taheb about a car he was selling. Taheb allegedly told the undercover agent he wanted to attack the White House and showed a hand-drawn diagram of the West Wing's ground floor. He said that "jihad was an obligation" and that he expected to be a martyr, according to the FBI. Taheb later suggested other targets, including the Washington Monument, the Lincoln Memorial, and a synagogue. Taheb was arrested after the FBI provided him with a tractor trailer filled with inert weapons and explosives.
