Terror Case Against Saudi Man Ends Without Much of a Defense

The attorney of a Saudi man accused in a bombing plot against the U.S. didn’t present much of a defense, resting the case without any evidence or witnesses to testify, the Associated Press reports.

Closing arguments in the terror case against Khalid Ali-M Aldawsari in Amarillo, Tex. are expected this morning.

If convicted, Aldawsari could be sentenced to life in prison for attempting to use a weapon of mass destruction, the AP reported. Authorities said the 22-year-old former Texas Tech chemical engineering student had long planned to attack the U.S. and even created a target list that included the Dallas home of former President George W. Bush.

The substance of the defense argument is that Aldawsari didn’t take a “substantial step” to carry out an attack because he never had a bomb, according to the AP.
