26 Year Old Massachusetts Man, Rezwan Ferdaus Arrested for Terror Plot to Blow Up Capitol & Pentagon

 

A 26 year old Massachusetts nan, Rezwan Ferdaus, was arrested by the FBI in a terror plot to fly remote control airplanes loaded with C-4 into the Capitol and Pentagon. Ferdaus thought he was working with members of al Qaeda to obtain explosives; however, they were actually undercover FBI agents. Was Feradaus from Yemen, Saudi Arabia or Pakistan … nope, he was a US citizen and a home grown terrorist. Ferdaus was financially  well off and educated at Northeastern University with a graduate with a degree in physics. He began planning to commit violent “jihad” against the US in early 2010.

Ferdaus allegedly gave the undercover FBI agents a detailed set of attack plans “with step-by-step instructions as to how he planned to attack the Pentagon and Capitol,” according to the Department of Justice.

The plans focused on the use of three small remote-controlled drone-like aircraft loaded with C-4 plastic explosives, which he planned to fly into the Capitol and the Pentagon using GPS equipment, according to the DOJ.

Loks like some one has been busy, busy , busy to inflict terrorism upon the USA.

For the past five months, Ferdaus has allegedly been stockpiling the equipment he needed for his proposed attack, including a remote-controlled aircraft, 25 pounds of fake C-4 explosives, six automatic AK-47 assault rifles and three grenades, according to the DOJ. He allegedly kept all of it in a storage facility in Massachusetts, where he was arrested.

Ferdaus was also charged with attempting to provide material support and resources to a foreign terrorist organization — al Qaeda — in order to carry out attacks on U.S. soldiers stationed overseas, federal authorities said.

Ferdaus allegedly modified eight cellphones to act as detonation devices for improvised explosive devices, and gave them to the FBI agents to be used against American soldiers in Iraq.

      Another one of those Tea Party terrorist. You can tell by the name.

      Meh. [edit] this guy, who could care less. If you find someone with a plot involving 1 remote controlled plane and 25 pounds of explosives intimidating, then you do.

      Richard Reid lighting a fuse in his shoe was a stronger play than this.

      SM: What’s the big deal about a terrorist and a little C-4 … is that what you are saying?

      But in one of the articles reporting on Mr.Ferdaus, who said the US is the enemy of Allah, we are reminded that his actions and arrest do not reflect any particular culture.
      Another case of “Don’t jump to conclusions,” I guess. Do they think we are all idiots?

      Feds Say Public Was Never in Danger in Massachusetts Man’s Thwarted Terror Plot
      Published September 29, 2011

      Ferdaus, who graduated Northeastern University in 2008 with a degree in physics, is accused of beginning in early 2010 a plot to bring violent “JIHAD” against the U.S, who he described as “ENEMIES OF ALLAH.” ….

      “I want the public to understand that Mr. Ferdaus’ conduct, as alleged in the complaint, is not reflective of a particular culture, community or religion,” said Carmen Ortiz, U.S. Attorney for the District of Massachusetts.

      Rep. Allen West Stands Up To CAIR Official |
      Wednesday, 23 February 2011 16:07

      “Let me say this … and I don’t care about being popular … what you’ve got to do is study and understand what you’re up against. This is not a religion that you are fighting against. You’re fighting against a theo-political belief system and construct.” …

      Until you get principle leadership in the United States of America that is willing to say that, we are going to be chasing our tail because we will never clearly define who this enemy is and then understand their goals and objectives, which is on any Jihadist website, and then come up with the right and proper goals and objectives to not only secure our Republic but to secure Western civilization.”

      Rep. Allen West was the ONLY politician on the platform who had an indepth comprehension … who had the ability to articulate the Islamic worldwide threat to destroy the “infidels” as per the Koran’s instruction to ALL Muslims or refused to take a politically correct way out.

      Ronald Reagan – 40th President of the USA (1981-1989)

      “One legislator accused me of having a nineteenth-century attitude on law and order. That is a totally false charge. I have an eighteenth-century attitude. That is when the Founding Fathers made it clear that the safety of law-abiding citizens should be one of the government’s primary concerns.”

      Ashland man faces terrorism charges
      September 29, 2011

      Rezwan Ferdaus, 26, a US citizen whose only known previous crime was vandalism, told FBI agents working undercover as Al Qaeda members that he wanted to “change the world,’’ according to the complaint.

      “I just can’t stop; there is no other choice for me,’’ he told the agents, according to an affidavit written by FBI Special Agent Gary S. Cacace.

      “THIS IS WHAT WE HAVE TO DO. This is the righteous way . . . to terrorize enemies of Allah,’’ he said, calling for the deaths of any kafir, the Arabic term for nonbeliever.

      I have ranted and complained so many times on this board about the number of criminals and ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS in my State. It’s beyond ridiculous—we also apparently have been catering to Extreme Muslim Terrorists for years. It is a known hideout for these types of vagrants and twisted assed people.

      Here, read this link to one of the BIGGEST problems the State of Massachusetts has,….INTERESTING—our Governor is a COMPLETE OBAMA CLONE!

      HELLLLLLLLLO, Deval? Anybody home? His ignorance on these issues is finally going to cost him the next election. Even the Libtards in our great State are getting fed up, and that’s saying something!
