SAN ANTONIO, Texas - A US federal jury convicted a Saudi Arabian citizen on Wednesday of attempting to build a weapon of mass destruction to attack several targets in the United States, including the Dallas home of former president George W. Bush.

Khalid Aldawsari, 22, who was a student at South Plains College near Lubbock, Texas, referred to Bush's home in an e-mail as a "tyrant's house."

Evidence presented at Aldawsari's trial in Amarillo, Texas, indicated that he had been researching online how to construct an improvised explosive device, using several chemicals as ingredients, according to the US Department of Justice.

In addition, Aldawsari conducted online research of several potential US targets, and had described in blog posts his desire for "violent jihad and martyrdom."
