City of Heath Mayor and Former U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of Texas John Ratcliffe was involved in Monday’s hearing of suspected terrorist Hosam Maher Husein Smadi before US Magistrate Irma Ramirez in Dallas.

Samadi, 19, has been accused by the FBI of attempting to blow up the 60-story Fountain Place office building in Dallas with a bomb and cell phone to detonate it  from several blocks away. 

The young man who, until his arrest, worked at a Sonic Drive-In in Italy, just South of Dallas, is charged with attempting to use a weapon of mass destruction and is being held at the federal detention facility in Seagoville. No dates for a trial or future hearings have been set.
