Via Epoch Times:
A Kansas man was arrested on Friday for apparently plotting a suicide bombing at the Wichita Mid-Continent Airport. Reports said the man wanted to detonate a car bomb.
It is unclear when the man–identified as Terry Lee Lowen–allegedly wanted to set off the bomb, and got bomb parts from FBI informants. Undercover FBI agents dealt with the suspect and he was under constant surveillance the whole time.
He wanted to trigger a bomb blast and “die in the explosion as a martyr,” said Michael Kaste, the U.S. Attorney in a press conference.
The bomb was inert and Lowen was arrested at the airport on Friday morning.
The suspect, according to NBC sources, is ”an older white man,” who apparently read Islamist material on the Internet and became “radicalized.”
The Topeka Capital-Journal said charges were filed against a man who was arrested on Friday morning.
The U.S. Attorney’s office and the FBI are describing the arrest as a “a national security matter,” NBC affiliate KSN reported. The FBI will make an announcement about the arrest later in the day.
More from NBC News: The terrorist is an avionics technician employed by the airport and "he attempted to use his security pass to drive a vehicle that he thought contained explosives onto the tarmac at the airport', who said:
"Let me preface the bottom line by saying I have become 'radicalized' in the strongest sense of the word, and I don't feel Allah wants me any other way," he said in one message, according to the complaint.
It's the religion.
The terrorist also said:
“As time goes on I care less and less about what other people think of me, or my views of lslam. I have been studying subjects like jihad, martyrdom operations, and Sharia law. I don’t understand how you can read the Qur’an and the sunnah3 of the Prophet (saw)a and not understand that jihad and the implementation of Sharia is absolutely demanded of all the Muslim Ummah.”
I do agree on one thing; the one thing we are doing wrong is that all 1.5 billion of us don’t rise up against the rest of the world and tell THEM how it’s going to be. lnshallah,T it will happen soon."
Loewen left a letter dated December 71,7013 for a family member describing his intent to conduct a martyrdom operation. It reads in part:
"By the time you read this I will – if everything went as planned- have been martyred in the path of Allah. There will have been an event at the airport which I am responsible for. The operation was timed to cause maximum carnage + death."
