Comment Of Senator Patrick Leahy On Foiled Plot To Assassinate Saudi Ambassador To The United States

“More details are sure to emerge in the coming days about this investigation.  What is clear from today’s announcement is that the Department of Justice, together with the FBI, the DEA and other agencies, worked collaboratively to bring these charges and foil this alleged plot.  I congratulate our national law enforcement team, including Attorney General Holder and Director Mueller, on what appears to be an exceptionally effective and well coordinated counterterrorism effort.”
