Feds Say Terror Suspect Wanted To Use Model Planes To Launch Bomb Attacks
The Massachusetts man charged today with plotting terror attacks in the United States allegedly wanted to use remote-controlled model airplanes loaded with explosives to bomb the Pentagon and U.S. Capitol.
Rezwan Ferdaus, 26, was busted for attempting to provide material support to a foreign terrorist organization (al Qaeda). As seen above, attached to a felony criminal complaint filed today in U.S. District Court in Worcester were photos (click to enlarge) of two of the aircraft that Ferdaus planned to load with C-4 explosive.
According to the FBI, in a recorded conversation with a cooperating witness, Ferdaus explained that his “small drone airplanes” would have been guided to their targets by GPS equipment.
A footnote in the criminal complaint describes the models as small-scale versions of an F-4 Phantom (top photo) and an F-86 Sabre. Both hobby aircraft bear Navy markings, while the tail of the F-4 has a Playboy logo, a favorite of infidels everywhere.
