[ AD HAS BEEN REMOVED FROM THIS STORY ]

LUBBOCK, Texas » A Texas college student from Saudi Arabia who is accused of buying chemicals and equipment to build a weapon of mass destruction is set to be arraigned.

The arraignment for Khalid Ali-M Aldawsari (al-daw-SAW’-ree) is scheduled for Monday morning at the federal courthouse in Lubbock. He faces up to life in prison if he’s convicted of attempted use of a weapon of mass destruction.

Court documents allege he had hatched plans to attack various U.S. targets, including New York City and former President George W. Bush’s Dallas home.

Aldawsari was arrested Feb. 23. Court records indicate that federal agents traced his online purchases, discovered extremist online posts he made and secretly searched his apartment, computer and e-mail accounts and read his diary.
