ISIS sympathiser planned to assassinate George W Bush in Texas, FBI says

An Iraqi who entered the US two years ago allegedly plotted to kill George W Bush, even travelling to Texas to surveil the former president’s home, according to an FBI search warrant affidavit obtained by NBC News.

The FBI alleges that Shihab Ahmed Shihab wanted to provide material support to the Islamic State terrorist group, telling a confidential FBI source that he wanted to smuggle people into the country “to murder former President George W Bush” because he held him responsible for killing numerous Iraqis in the 2003 invasion of the country.
