 US man arrested on suspicion of attempting to attack the White House with an anti-tank Rocket Launcher


Reference News Network reported Jan. 22 that the Associated Press reported on Jan. 16 that the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) arrested a 21-year-old man on Jan. 16 in Kaming Town near Atlanta, Georgia, suspected of plotting to attack the White House with an anti-tank rocket.

A Georgia district attorney said the arrested man, Tahob, from Cumming, Georgia, tried to exchange guns and explosives with a car and an FBI undercover agent to attack the White House and other federal government buildings. Tahobs targets include the White House, the Washington Monument, the Lincoln Memorial and the Statue of Liberty.

According to the document, a person who knew Tahbu in 2018 provided information to the police that Tahbu accepted radicalism. The police then notified the FBI. Tahbu allegedly told an FBI undercover agent that he wanted to launch an attack with guns, grenades, homemade bombs and other weapons to cause as much damage as possible.

Tahob claimed that he planned to enter the White House from the back-door Lane in order not to attract the attention of security personnel. After sneaking into the White House, he will use an anti-tank rocket to blast open a door and kill as many people as possible.

U.S. investigators said Tahbu had never fired a gun, but could easily grasp the use of weapons, and said he had browsed videos of grenade throwing and explosion.

According to investigators, there is no evidence that Tahbu belongs to any terrorist organization. (Compiler/Vernon)
