ISIS-Affiliated Suspect Arrested in Plot to Kill George W. Bush

May 25, 2022

Fox News reports that a man affiliated with the Islamic terror group ISIS is under arrest for his role in an alleged plot to assassinate former President George W. Bush.

“An Iraqi citizen living in Columbus, Ohio, has been charged federally with an immigration crime and with aiding and abetting a plot to murder former United States President George W. Bush,” the Justice Department said in a press release on Tuesday.

The statement added that the suspect, 52-year-old Shihab Ahmed Shihab Shihab, originally came to the United States in September 2020 on a visitor visa and filed for asylum in March 2021, which is pending review.

Shihab, according to the Department of Justice, exchanged money with other individuals in an attempt to illegally smuggle foreign nationals into the United States and specifically planned to help four Iraqi nationals come into the United States across the southern border to help kill Bush.

The charging document states that Shihab launched the plot “in retaliation of Iraqi deaths during “Operation Iraqi Freedom.”
