A guy in Massachusetts was picked up by the FBI and charged with planning drone attacks against the Pentagon and the Capitol bldg where sits parliament. Apparently the feds stung him.
(BOSTON) — A Massachusetts man was arrested Wednesday and accused of plotting an assault on the Pentagon and U.S. Capitol using remote-controlled aircraft armed with explosives — the latest of several terrorism cases to spring from federal sting operations.
Rezwan Ferdaus was arrested in Framingham after undercover federal agents delivered materials he had allegedly requested, including grenades, six machine guns and what he believed was 24 pounds of C-4 explosive. Federal officials said the public was never in danger from the explosives, which it said were always under control and closely monitored.
Gee whillikers, I wonder where he got such a diabolical idea?
Time magazine got the story.
Rezwan Ferdaus is a US citizen, but whether he was born here I haven't been able to find out.
He's a Muslim and a self-declared jihadi.
He also has a physics degree from Northeastern University and used to play drums in a band called the Goosepimp Orchestra.
For what that's worth.
There's a picture of the alleged fiend here.
