White House on Texas arrest

The White House just issued a statement on the Texas arrest of Saudi national Khalid Ali-M Aldawsari on a federal terror charge.

From spokesman Nick Shapiro:

The President was informed about the operation by John Brennan prior to the arrest. This arrest once again underscores the necessity of remaining vigilant against terrorism here and abroad. The President thanks the FBI, Department of Justice, and the rest of our law enforcement, intelligence and Homeland Security professionals who continue to keep us safe and who once again have served with extraordinary skill and with the commitment that their enormous responsibilities demand.
