Man who planned to blow up the Pentagon arrested

Recommended Posts

A 26-year-old Massachusetts man has been arrested and accused of plotting to destroy the Pentagon and the U.S. Capitol with large remote-controlled aircraft filled with explosives.

 

Rezwan Ferdaus of Ashland was arrested Wednesday in Framingham when undercover federal agents delivered materials he'd requested for his alleged plan, including grenades, six machine guns and what Ferdaus believed was C-4 explosive.

 

Ferdaus, a U.S. citizen and graduate of Boston's Northeastern University, was scheduled to appear in federal court in Worcester on Wednesday afternoon.

 

A message for comment was left for his attorney, Catherine Byrne.

 

According to the federal affidavit, Ferdaus began planning "jihad" against the U.S. in early 2010. He allegedly believed he would have a large psychological impact by killing Americans, whom he described as "enemies of Allah."

You're right, we should go on a Crusade.

 

In the spirit of equality, sure, we're entitled to another. :(

Not totally true. THe Norway thing was more racism as in the psycho wanted to put the blame of the killings on the muslims to turn people against them and in turn get them all deported or such. So religion in that case was moot.

"Large remote-controlled aircraft"?:confused: So, in other words, they're boasting that they've caught a loser who was planning to 'blow up' the Pentagon with the likes of a toy Air Hogs RC Flyer or something? Give me a freaking break...

No. The large model planes can cost 20k, and would be about 8 feet in length. They can carry about 50 pounds of explosives if someone can convert them correctly, and if they could foot the bill for one. They are extremely dangerous in the wrong hands though, because the planes are hard to control, and is only for experienced model plane flyers. I doubt that this guy even had the knowledge for it. He might have had ended up flying the model at himself.

I remember a radio control aircraft club that used to bring all of their WWII-era planes to Floyd Bennett Field...they still around? Those things were amazing to see.
