Who is Khaled Al-Dossary?
Al-Dosari is a university student from Saudi Arabia, who was sent in 2008 to study in Texas, USA.
He was arrested on February 28, 2011, and charged with “manufacturing explosive chemicals.”

Then the charge was reduced to one charge of “possession of weapons of mass destruction” and he was tried and sentenced to life imprisonment, according to “Wikipedia”.
Al-Dossary and “Netflix”
“Netflix”, the company specialized in producing films and television programs, and distributing video over the Internet, produced a movie called “The Bomb Maker Student” in 2020.
A suspicious online purchase comes to the aid of the FBI to begin its investigation into a chemical engineering student’s attempt to do horrific harm to America, Netflix published a profile of him saying.
Khaled Al-Dosari – whose full name is Khalid bin Ali bin Muhammad Al-Dosari – received his primary education at Abu Bakr Al-Siddiq and Al-Mughirah bin Shubah Primary Schools, then completed the intermediate stage at King Khalid Intermediate School.
He continued his secondary education career at Prince Sultan Secondary School and graduated from the general secondary stage with an excellent grade and a score of 99.32%.
This helped him to enroll in the SABIC mission in 2008 to pursue a Bachelor’s degree in Chemical Engineering in the United States of America.
The incident dates back to February 28, 2011, when the US Department of Justice published a statement in which it said that the US military had arrested a Saudi young man residing in the United States, because he had purchased chemical products and equipment that would allow him to build a bomb and because he had identified a number of potential targets, including the former president’s home. George Bush.
The FBI later released a statement saying that Al-Dosari sent himself an email titled “Good Targets,” which listed two types of targets: hydroelectric dams and nuclear plants.
The intelligence service also found another e-mail entitled “The Tyrant’s House” and containing the address of President George W. Bush’s home in Dallas.
Khaled was charged with a number of charges, including attempting to use a weapon of mass destruction and possibly targeting former President George W. Bush.
He was also accused of plotting to blow up nuclear power plants and hydroelectric dams, while other charges surfaced in government documents including Khaled’s intention to target a nightclub using dolls stuffed with explosives and placed in a backpack.
The Federal Police search of Al-Dosari’s house had found concentrated sulfuric and nitric acid, apart from some vessels and wires.
Khaled Al-Dosari’s lawyer, on the other hand, presented a different account from the one provided by the US authorities, as he said that Khaled had indeed requested a quantity of chemicals from Burlington, North Carolina, through a shipping company, but that was for research and study purposes only.
Lawyer Rod Hobson, who is Khaled Al-Dosari’s lawyer, asked the court to overturn the attorney general’s decision to ban the disclosure of evidence collected by the authorities to convict Al-Dosari and to allow the defense team to see confidential information collected by the authorities, but the court refused.

A first court session was held on the twenty-eighth of March of the same year, in which Khaled Al-Dosari appeared in the courtroom with his feet and hands bound.
Al-Dosari also attended the indictment session, in which he listened to all the charges brought against him by the American authorities, which he denied altogether and in detail, assuring the judge that he was not guilty.
After two years of arrest, the number of charges against Khaled al-Dosari was reduced to one charge, which is “possession of weapons of mass destruction.”
Al-Dosari was tried on this charge on November 13, 2013 in a state court in Amarillo, Texas, before a final life sentence was issued against the Saudi student.
During Khaled al-Dosari’s trial, the judge said the evidence against the defendant was firm in the records of the company that supplied the chemicals he ordered and other dangerous materials used to make bombs.
In addition to his computer, which condemns him, it turns out that he searched for nuclear power plants in the United States of America, and also searched for the homes of three American soldiers who were stationed in Abu Ghraib prison in Iraq.
Khaled explained that what was reported to have written “terrorist ideas” on his computer was not true, and denied that investigators had found anything to condemn him.
