Man Charged with Trying to Bomb Chicago Bar Accused of Trying to Kill Undercover FBI Agent

A teenager accused of trying to bomb a downtown Chicago bar also tried to get an undercover FBI agent killed, the Associated Press reports.

From his jail cell, Adel Daoud is accused of plotting to have someone kill an FBI agent who played a role in a sting that led to this arrest in 2012, the AP wrote.

The 19-year-old now faces a charge of solicitation of murder.

Authorities say Daoud was targeting the FBI agent who posed as a terrorist in New York.

Daoud’s attorney dismissed the claims as outrageous.

“The government was pursuing the allegations of a notoriously unreliable street gang jailhouse informant,” attorney Thomas Durkin said.

“These fantastic new charges only further support our previous public position that the trial evidence will show that Adel Daoud is an immature, impressionable and manipulable teenager — not the international terrorist the government seems hell-bent on trying to paint.”
