LUBBOCK, Texas -- A college student from Saudi Arabia who studied chemical engineering in Texas bought explosive chemicals online as part of a plan to hide bomb materials inside dolls and baby carriages to blow up dams, nuclear plants or the Dallas home of former President George W. Bush, the Justice Department said Thursday.

"After mastering the English language, learning how to build explosives and continuous planning to target the infidel Americans, it is time for jihad," or holy war, Khalid Ali-M Aldawsari wrote in his private journal, according to court documents.

The 20-year-old Aldawsari wrote that he was planning an attack in the United States for years, even before coming to the U.S. on a scholarship. He said he was influenced by Osama bin Laden's speeches and that he bemoaned the plight of Muslims.

One of the chemical companies, Carolina Biological Supply of Burlington, N.C., reported $435 in suspicious purchases by Aldawsari to the FBI on Feb. 1.

Separately, shipping company Con-Way Freight notified Lubbock police the same day with similar suspicions. Within weeks, federal agents had traced his other online purchases, discovered extremist posts he made on the Internet and secretly searched his off-campus apartment, computer and e-mail accounts and read his diary, according to court records.

TNP, the chemical explosive that Aldawsari was suspected of trying to make, has approximately the same destructive power as TNT. FBI bomb experts said the amounts in the Aldawsari case would have yielded almost 15 pounds of explosive. That's about the same amount used per bomb in the London subway attacks that killed scores of people in July 2005.

Aldawsari, who was legally in the U.S. on a student visa, was expected to appear in federal court on Friday. He was charged Thursday with attempted use of a weapon of mass destruction.

Aldawsari entered the U.S. in October 2008 from Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, to study chemical engineering at Texas Tech University. He transferred this year to nearby South Plains College, where he was studying business. A Saudi industrial company, which was not identified in court documents, was paying his tuition and living expenses in the U.S.

"He was quiet. I thought he was a good guy," said Ahmid Obaidan, a senior at Tennessee State University who also is from Saudi Arabia and met Aldawsar in Nashville, Tenn., when Aldawsari was studying at an English language center at Vanderbilt University.

It was not immediately clear whether Aldawsari had hired a lawyer. Telephone numbers that Aldawsari had provided to others were not working Thursday. No one answered the buzzer or a knock on the door at the address listed as Aldawsari's apartment, just one block from the Texas Tech campus in a recently gentrified area of mixed-use retail and apartment complexes where many students live.

The terrorism case outlined in court documents was significant because it suggests that radicalized foreigners can live quietly in the U.S. without raising suspicions from neighbors, classmates, teachers or others. But it also showed how quickly U.S. law enforcement can move when tipped that a terrorist plot may be unfolding.

Prosecutors said Aldawsari, who hoped to create an Islamic group under the al-Qaida banner, had a blog to publish extremist messages expressing his dismay over conditions for Muslims.

"You who created mankind, grant me martyrdom for your sake and make jihad easy for me only in your path," he wrote, according to court records.

[God is LIFE, TRUTH and FREE WILL! Satan comes to steal, KILL and destroy! Satan is also the author of lies and confusion. These weak minded demented radical Islamic extremist are not praying to God Almighty! The God of Abraham, father of Isaac and Ishmael. The Source of all creation. They are literally praying to the dark forces that are fueling their rage and hatred. If you live in America and are a practicing muslim, no one cares about your religious beliefs. Why? Because here in America we have FREEDOM OF RELIGION. What you do in your "personal" life is your business. Where most of us have a beef however is when you emphatically state in your speeches and amongst each other, that you hate our American infidel lifestyle and you say in your Muslim Pledge of Allegiance, "Jihad is in my spirit. I will die to establish Islam." That's pretty clear to those of us who value OUR FREEDOM. We don't want you to IMPOSE YOUR RELIGIOUS BELIEF's ON US PERIOD! We don't want to live under YOUR STRICT SHARIA LAW! That is precisely why most Americans from ALL backgrounds have come together to PRESERVE our US Constitution and our Bill of Rights. Because we don't want to be CONTROLLED by the State (government ie; Marxism, Socialism, Communism) or the Church (any religion). (emphasis mine)]
