23-year-old man sentenced to 15 years in prison for plotting an attack on the White House

A man was sentenced on Thursday, July 23, to 15-years in prison for plotting an attack on the White House and several government properties.  Hasher Jallal Taheb, 23, of Cumming, Georiga pleaded guilty to attempted destruction of government property by fire or explosive. He was sentenced Thursday in U.S. District Court. “Taheb planned to conduct a terrorist attack on the White House as part of what he claimed was his obligation to engage in jihad,” said Assistant Attorney General for National Security John C. Demers. “And that was just one of the iconic American landmarks he wanted to target. Thanks to a tip from a member of the community and the work of the agents, analysts, and prosecutors responsible for this case, the threat posed by the defendant was neutralized and the defendant has now been sentenced for his planned terrorist attack.” “Taheb painstakingly planned an attack on the White House that potentially jeopardized the lives of White House employees and visitors,” said U.S.

We have a long way to go: Don Jazzy on NDDC probe.

Ace music producer, Don Jazzy has shared his view about the ongoing probe of the Niger Delta Development Commission (NDDC).  In an Instagram post he shared, the music executive stated that the great opportunity for the Niger Delta region to become a model for the entire nation was wasted by a few selfish people.  Don Jazzy who wondered if Ken Saro-Wiwa who lost his life for the region's cause would be proud of how things turned around, added that the NDDC with this huge financial recklessness over the years, is just one of many government agencies. He wrote;  THOUGHTS ON NDDC : I read through this to know the Senate's resolution on the back of the #NDDCprobe in the National assembly and so many things come to mind.

Corruption has now become so endemic in our nation that
