Hosam Smadi Gets 24 Years

Posted: October 20, 2010 in Homeland Terror Alerts, Hosam Smadi Gets 24 Years

A 20-year-old Jordanian man was sentenced Tuesday to 24 years in federal prison after he was caught, in an FBI undercover operation, trying to use a truck bomb to destroy the 60-story Fountain Place office building in Dallas, Texas, authorities said.

Hosam Maher Husein Smadi pleaded guilty in May in U.S. District Court in Dallas to attempted use of a weapon of mass destruction, which carries a maximum life sentence.
