Terror suspect arrested near Capitol in FBI sting operation

He was planning on blowing up the Capitol today.  Fortunately, the FBI knew about it.

A 29-year-old Moroccan man was arrested today while planning to detonate explosives at the Capitol.  The FBI had been tracking the man for a about a year.  They said he changed his target location several times, but canvassed the Capitol and eventually decided to plant a bomb there.   Today was the day.

The man had a visitor visa that had expired years ago.  The FBI had around-the-clock surveillance on him for several weeks, and he was not arrested on Capitol grounds.
