Aziz Ihab Sayyed came to the FBI’s attention after community members reported that he was watching ISIS propaganda videos. In June 2017, Sayyed met with an undercover FBI agent who was posing as an ISIS member. They discussed triacetone triperoxide, or TATP, a highly volatile explosive material made by combining sulfuric acid, hydrogen peroxide, and acetone. Sayyed offered to help ISIS and told the undercover agent that he wanted to orchestrate attacks on police stations and on Redstone Arsenal, a U.S. Army post in Huntsville, Alabama.
