Maryland Muslim man arrested in Islamic State attack to “kill as many people as possible” in DC area is charged with supporting terrorists


Jihadi Rondell Henry planned to run down pedestrians on the National Harbor waterfront, a popular tourist site along the Potomac River near Washington. Henry stole a truck from a suburban Washington shopping mall last month and drove around looking for terror targets. After failing to breach security at Dulles International Airport, Henry is accused of driving to the National Harbor in Maryland — a Potomac River walkway lined with shops and restaurants, highly popular with tourists. But in the court filing, the prosecutors say Henry did not find a large enough crowd for his desired act and decided to wait until later.

Just because the media has censored jihad war coverage doesn’t mean it’s not raging.

MAN CAUGHT IN FAILED ISIS-INSPIRED ATTACK ON DC AREA CHARGED WITH SUPPORTING TERRORISTS

A Maryland man who allegedly pledged himself to ISIS and planned to run over pedestrians in the nation’s capital was stopped before he could carry out the attack and has been charged with attempting to support a terrorist organization.

Rondell Henry, 28, of Germantown, Maryland, claimed to be inspired by ISIS when he stole a U-Haul van in Alexandria, Virginia, on March 26 before driving it to Maryland the next day with the intent of using it as a weapon to hit pedestrians on sidewalks at the newly developed National Harbor complex on the Potomac River near Washington. A federal grand jury returned an indictment against him on Wednesday.

According to the detention memo from April 8, Henry harbored “hatred” for those not practicing the Muslim faith and had been inspired by the 2016 truck attack in Nice, France.

“The defendant, allegedly inspired by ISIS and its violent ideology, stole a vehicle as part of his plan to kill and injure innocent pedestrians. The National Security Division, working with our partners, remains committed to identifying and holding accountable those who would commit terrorist attacks on our soil,” Assistant Attorney General for National Security John C. Demers said in a Department of Justice statement announcing the indictment.

The government alleges that after stealing the van, Henry drove to Dulles International Airport at 5 a.m. on March 27, parked the vehicle before entering the terminal, and then tried for two hours to find a possible way through security to harm “disbelievers” in a way designed for maximum publicity. But after failing to find a way to penetrate the airport’s security perimeter, he drove the U-Haul to the National Harbor later that morning.

The stolen U-Haul was found by law enforcement March 28 parked at the National Harbor for the alleged planned attack. Police said they reviewed security camera footage of the area that showed Henry parking and exiting the vehicle.

Henry was subsequently arrested by Prince George’s County Police before any attack could be attempted.
